Opening The Glengarry Market was a dream born out of necessity (like so many good things!).
I’ve always been passionate about making sure my children, Markus and Autumn, have access to healthy, locally sourced food, and that was part of the reason I opened the Brine Cellar, my home-based fermenting business in February 2016.
But in July 2018 the new Ontario Health Unit regulations came into place, forcing me to make a decision about The Brine Cellar. The changes meant I needed to either find a commercial kitchen to continue my work, or shut down altogether.
And that’s when the idea for the market came to me.
I got in touch with friends and colleagues and asked if they would be interested in supporting a market to showcase their products. The feedback was an overwhelming YES, and the support from our community has been tremendous.
Eventually I found the perfect spot in Alexandria that allows me to operate The Brine Cellar in the commercial kitchen space, and have a Vendor Market in the front of the store.
Just over a year later, The Glengarry Market has over 50 local vendors, farmers, crafters and artisans, and is a hub to shop local and support local. A bonus to all of this is that not only do Autumn and Markus have access to healthy, locally sourced food, they are getting to know the people who grow and farm the food they eat!
We are a growing market, and our mission is to provide a supportive location for our vendors to sell their products. If you want to SHOP LOCAL, this is the market for you!
