🧑🌾🥗 Barrie Farmers' Market
Correspondence from J.Grant, Marketing and Operations Manager, Barrie Farmer's Market: https://barrie.legistar.com/View.ashx?M=F&ID=11567277&GUID=D1343671-E267-4CAC-AEF0-C739A89645B6
The BFM is grateful for the partnership with the City
BFM prefers the City Hall location over a new location at the current Transit Terminal
The market is constrained in the winter months, and would like to work with staff to make a plan for expansion to present to Council in near future
BFM would appreciate support & funding for mobile markets again this summer, as 2022 was a big success, providing additional opportunities for artisans and musicians, and expanding tourism
A permanent market would be direct competition to BFM and not complementary for future planning purposes
