The Prospect Communities Farmers Market is hosted at the Prospect Road Community Centre (PRCC), just 13 minutes from Halifax, along Route 333, the Road to Peggy's Cove. The facility has lots of free parking and is completely accessible.
Each market hosts a variety of vendors with produce, baked goods, preserves, handmade crafts, cider, hot food, meat, eggs, coffee, and tea as well as live music and a place to sit and people watch. Our market operates rain or shine as we host vendors inside, though some vendors may set up outside should conditions allow.
The Prospect Communities Farmers Market is operated by the Resource Opportunities Centre; a not-for-profit community development organization serving the Prospect Communities from Goodwood to West Dover. In addition to various other projects, the ROC operates the Prospect Road Community Centre
The Prospect Communities Farmers Market supports the ROC's vision of a welcoming, thriving, innovative community. Our mission is to provide recreational, educational, social and technological opportunities to local residents. Improving local access to fresh Nova Scotia farm produce, prepared foods and crafts through a local market further supports our vision and mission.
We are excited to be able to provide an opportunity to connect the Prospect Communities to small local farms, craft businesses, and new business start-ups as well as a space for gathering socially with neighbours and neighbouring communities.
