IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE

 

Due to heavy traffic volume on the field and customers arriving earlier and earlier, we will be restricting access to the market to vendors only until 3:45.  There will be volunteers at the market to help facilitate this change.  This is for safety reasons and to allow vendors to fully set up prior to the arrival of customers.

COMMUNITY GROUPS AT THE MARKET

Island Roots Market is pleased to announce we will be making space for Not for Profit community groups and organizations to join our weekly market. Not for profit groups are an important part of every community and at Island Roots, we understand the challenges of getting your information out to the public. We want to make that easier by providing an established, busy location for you to advertise fundraisers, community                                                                                   events, information and updates as well as connect with new faces.
