WHAT WE DO
The McGill Farmers' Market was established to make local food more accessible to both the McGill and Montreal community. We pay particular attention to sourcing food that is healthy, affordable, and sustainably produced.
The McGill Farmers' Market is a weekly gathering spot for students, faculty, and community members to discover local foods. With more than ten local suppliers, the Market provides the opportunity for downtown residents to connect to the agricultural community of Quebec.
In addition to our weekly Market, we organize a community supported agriculture program, which provides our community with local and seasonal produce throughout the summer and fall. Basket members can choose from a variety of sizes and farms, according to their needs.
We are a proud member of the Kohlrabi Collective, a business partnership between Organic Campus, MSEG, and the Market. The Collective seeks to alleviate short-term challenges through cooperation. The Collective was created to improve the longevity of each of these endeavours.
The Market enjoys a partnership with Robin des Bois, a non-profit restaurant located in the Plateau-Mont Royal. By donating our leftover produce to the organization, we support its mission to produce wholesome meals that benefit various social justice organizations in Montreal.

For the first week of the McGill Farmers' Market, the students from the McGill School of Dietetics and Human Nutrition brought us a zucchini bread recipe that's not only healthy but also incredibly tasty!
