2017 Farmers Market

Our Farmers Market will be starting, as it always does, on the 1st Sunday in June again – June 4th.  All our regular vendors are back along with a few from Symons Valley who, as you know, were badly affected by fire this last winter.

This year we are extending the market an extra week into October in order to have a full 19 weeks for our customers and vendors.

Come and see our newly renovated hall!  We have vastly improved the inside and outside and are now branding it ‘The Bearspaw Lions Community Hall’.  We have new everything inside, stage, Bar, audio / visual equipment and a new deck area will be under construction soon along with walkways onto the deck from both sides of the Hall.  As usual, the Hall can be rented for your private parties, weddings or for community gatherings.  Go to our Facebook Page ‘Bearspaw Lions Community Hall’ for more information.

Our inside caterer will be providing breakfast and brunch/lunch  from about 9:00 AM to closing, at 2:00 PM, and of course our regular food vendors will be waiting for you as well.

Our vendor stalls are numbered starting on the East side of our property with odd numbers on the South side and even numbers on the North side.  The stalls at the far East side and in the middle have letters starting with ‘A’.  Vendors in the Hall are numbered beginning with a ‘T’ (Table).

2016 Sunday Bearspaw Lions Farmers Market as well as our NEW Wednesday Market are in operation!!!!

The Sunday Farmers Market is now running, along with the addition of a new day – Wednesdays!  We are running a new market every Wednesday from  3:30 PM to 7:30 PM.  The new Sunday Market Vendor Application Form is ready and there is a separate form for the Wednesday Market – send an e-mail to farmersmarket2016@bearspawlions.com for more information.  Prices for Sunday vendors remain the same as last year .  Check here for the Vendor Pricing.

Returning full time vendor invoices are being prepared and will be sent out before the end of the month.  We require a new Vendor Application Form (VAF) to be filled out by all returning vendors as well as new potential vendors.  Part-time pre-booked vendors must fill out a VAF along with their pre-booked schedule.

If you are a new potential vendor looking for a spot in our market fill out a VAF and send it to us as soon as possible.  We’ll review all new vendor applications once we have confirmed which of our existing vendors are returning and will get back to you as soon as we can.  Please note: if you fall into the 20% category (see our FAQ for details) it is very unlikely we’ll have room for you but you can still apply.

Do you know where we are?  Contact us if you have any questions.

Calgary Food Bank Day at Bearspaw Lions Farmers Market!

September 23, 2012 is Food Bank day at our market! Come down and donate food you’ve purchased or cash to the Food Bank. Last year this was a great event that provided fresh food for the Food Bank’s needy customers. Cash that was donated was used to purchase fresh food at our market the next Sunday so both our vendors and Food Bank customers were winners.

2012 Bearspaw Lions Farmers Market is in Full Swing!

Our opening day on June 3rd was a great success with a number of new and returning vendors attending.  New this year are Thai food vendors, yummy cream puffs, cookies, the Spudmobeel, Belgian waffle vendor and many more.  Our regular breakfast / lunch is there of course with an expanded menu for lunch.

 

Please note: We are no longer accepting any more vendor applications for this season’s market.  We have more vendors than we can accommodate.  Thanks to everyone for your interest!

Crowfoot YMCA has reached their Goal ($60,000) for Strong Kids Campaign

We are pleased to hear from the Crowfoot YWCA that they have reached, with our help, their goal for their yearly Strong Kids Campaign.  Here’s an excerpt from their website at: YMCA

YMCA Strong Kids Campaign raises much needed financial support for children, teens and families who are unable to afford the full cost of participation in a YMCA program or activity. We all wonder how our individual gift could ever have an impact? YMCA Strong Kids Campaign helps one person at a time, one family at a time and one program at a time. That might mean providing funds to:

  • Help a youth gain the confidence and skills to avoid addiction, violence, and isolation
  • Help a child attend day camp for the first time and meet new friends
  • Give a teen a safe place to go
  • Help a young immigrant learn English
  • Enable a struggling family to use a child care facility
  • Enable a child to make healthy choices by participating in a recreation or fitness activity

In 2011, our goal is to raise $1.2 million to help enrich the lives of more than 13,500 children and youth in Calgary. All money raised goes directly to children and youth so they can connect and belong, make healthy choices and reach their potential.
