The Apple Box is proud to present an innovative food shop collaborative The Farmers’ City Market – and they need your support!

Located in energetic Fan Tan Alley, this petite, yet mighty space is dedicated to showcasing and promoting start-up growers and producers strictly based, in and around, the Victoria area. Doors will open June 1st!

Aiming to elevate the community and local food inventors, The Farmers’ City Market has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise initial start up costs. This unique collaborative has a goal of $7,500 and a mere 8 days to go!

Fun pledge rewards range from tasty treats to a Hall of Fame opportunity and the chance to star in an exclusive music video. More importantly, the support from generous backers will assist with transforming the tiny space into a bustling shop that will provide affordable organic milk, eggs, cheese, frozen local meals and a revolving showcase of new and exciting items, made by local producers, growers and food inventors. Some of the producers that will be featured in the space, include Saltspring Sunrise Edibles, The Happy Goat Cheese, The Apple Box Frozen Local Meals on Cook Street, Skog handcrafted cheese boards, Avalon Dairy, Cured Local Meats & New Food Inventions to come!

100% of the profits made in The Farmers’ City Market shop will go directly to the producers themselves; making this space the only shop of it’s kind in Victoria.

“We are thrilled to create such a bountiful space for local growers, producers and artisans. We firmly believe that by giving small businesses a place to sell their wares, it will empower, inspire and elevate the whole community,” says Christa Atherton, Owner & Inventor.

With the help of the local community, The Farmers’ City Market can pioneer a new way to bring consumers the local food products they love at a price they can afford.

Doors open June 1st, trading 7 days a week. Fan Tan Alley, downtown Victoria, BC.
