Thanks to the support of the market managers each weekend the Buy Local, Share Local booth is setup at The Covent Garden Outdoor Farmers Market (Saturdays May to Thanksgiving), Western Fair Farmers Market (Saturdays January to November), & The Masonville Farmers Market (Fridays May to Thanksgiving). Donations of fresh produce are collected at these booths from market shopper and vendors. There is an ongoing need for volunteers to staff the booths.
