The Importance of Supporting Local Business
Did you know that when you choose to shop at a local business, more of your money stays in your local economy? Supporting local business affects the livelihoods of those living in your community and the best part is you know, or can easily find out, where your products are coming from. It’s inspirational to be able to connect with a business owner and their staff on a personal level and learn more about their products. Local businesses convey a pride of ownership and passion for their products, something that is unparalleled with large national and multi-national companies.

The Callingwood Farmers’ Market has been supporting local businesses for the last 31 years. We are continually inspired by the hard-working people who are proud and passionate about what they do!

Here are a some neat facts about just a few of our many fantastic vendors.
