About Specialty Markets and the SJFM

The St. John’s Farmers’ Market Co-operative (SJFM Co-op) manages the St. John’s Community Market Building (SJCM) at 245 Freshwater Road.

The St. John’s Farmers’ Market takes place here at the SJCM on Saturdays every week year round, with a few multi-day Farmers’ Market events during the year, like Birthday Weekend and Festive Market. The St. John’s Farmers’ Market adjudicated and approved Vendor Members are the exclusive vendors for Farmers’ Markets, who meet our quality standards of “Make It, Bake It, Grow It” where all items sold are handmade (harvested/foraged, baked, cooked, crafted…) by the vendor themself here in the province.

Customers can find more information about our Saturday Farmers’ Markets here.

Applications open to new Farmers’ Market vendors for the season once per year, and upon approval vendors can access the booking system to request Saturday Farmers’ Market dates. Interested vendors can find more information about becoming a Farmers’ Market vendor here.

In addition to the Saturday Farmers’ Market, the SJFM Co-op hosts specialty markets a few times per month here at the SJCM, and also rents the venue for community events the rest of the week. These events do not have the same requirements as our regular Farmers’ Markets, and are open to the community to apply. Note that we do not, however, accept applications from MLMs or direct sales reps. Unlike the Saturday Farmers’ Market , the SJFM hosted specialty markets have individual application forms for each event, and cater to different themes/demographics, like vintage, sci-fi, etc.
