Hillsborough Farmers Market Opening Day @ Old Church
May 20 @ 8:00 am – 1:00 pm

Foods of the Fundy Valley is excited to announce the opening of our newly relocated  FFV Farmers’ Market at the Old Church,  2807 Main Street, Hillsborough, also home to Oliver’s German Bakery. Our new space is in a beautiful, old historic church that has now been transformed into a business centre.  We will have much more indoor space for vendors and customers to enjoy in all kinds of weather.

Our new Market Committee is very energized and ready to create an amazing Farmers’ Market of vendors from both ends of Albert County, making this a 100% local market.

In addition to our existing vendors, we have lots of interested new vendors, tons of free parking, and Oliver will be back at the market, with the Bakery being open every Saturday.

With the increased indoor and outdoor space, we are still looking to welcome new vendors of local foods and crafts. Make it, bake it or grow it in Albert County, and come sell your wares at our market.

The market will run every Saturday from 8:00AM – 1:00PM, starting on Saturday, May 20th for the Victoria Day long weekend. The market will be open until the Thanksgiving weekend, with the last day being Saturday, October 7.

If you or someone you know is interested in being part of our market, please contact either of our market managers at:
