Centro Farm Market — Overview

Starting it’s 6th season, Burlington Downtown’s farmers market was started by downtown residents Leslie Akse and Barry Imber along with their friend Jason Pepetone, owner of Centro Garden.

The goal was to make a space for the community to share in a love for farm to market food and the people who produce it as well as to fulfil the need for a place for people of all ages and economics to relax in a friendly community first atmosphere.

The market was truly created by community people to fill the void of a missing community market and gathering place; a desire we all had to enjoy our downtown more.

This market is not a commercial marketing endeavour or business venture, rather the Centro Market is run by generous volunteers and is graciously supported by donations from Centro Garden, Barry and Leslie and friends as well as the Burlington Downtown Business Association. So this is truly Burlington’s community market.

This well intentioned ethos has lead to it’s success in becoming a part of our community’s heart for which we are proud and grateful of your participation and support of our vendors.

We look forward to seeing you here.

Focus

Centro Farmer’s Market in Burlington Downtown focuses on bringing locally grown and produced food and their producers to an easy going environment in the downtown core.

We look for food producers that share in our vision of real, simple, honest food as a critical piece to a healthy lifestyle. Vendors at the Centro Market bring goods that are therefore either organic, sustainably grown, unprocessed or basic in processing and sustainably packaged where possible.

Non food vendors bring locally made goods that have a connection to farming by ingredients such as soaps made from local botanicals and oils or flowers grown in farm country or in area gardens.

Currently there are roughly 14 full time vendors and 6 casual visiting vendors that dot the calendar through the summer.

Events

The market also hosts chefs, mobile kitchens and children’s workshops through the season to further generate interest and excitement around local food. These participants are carefully chosen for their shared interests and philosophies on building community and supporting local food production.
