John Sandberg from Pathback Farms  —John is also a CSA farmer!!


The Ontario CSA Farm Directory lists farmers that offer weekly freshly picked farm-raised food boxes to members who are part of their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Consumers wanting good quality, safe food and farmers looking for stable markets form a type of partnership. The consumer (you) pay the farmer a one-time fee (or share) prior to the start of growing season. This fee is determined by seed cost, equipment maintenance, property fees, tools, salaries, distribution costs, etc. In return, you receive weekly food boxes either by delivery or at a pick-up location near you.

John Sandberg also has CSA’a. A CSA is community shared agriculture. Farmers put in shares and the customer picks up a basket. It begins Mid June for 14 weeks. Enough vegetables for 2 people for meals 4-5 nights a week.

Are You in These Photos-CPFM May 14- by Tracy Lamb


Have you seen the amazing pictures Tracy Lamb tool of the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market last week- check it out you might be there!CLICK HERE.



We have everyone asking for fresh eggs at the Carleton Place Farmers Market.. We are NOT allowed to sell them so for everyone who keeps asking me — here is a place you can buy them locally..

Do You Realize that Tomatoes Don’t Grow in May?


Sometimes people come to the market in May, and see no tomatoes or other late seasonal vegetables, so they never come back. This year on our Carleton Place Farmer’s Market website (https://cpfarmersmarket.wordpress.com/) we have put a chart so you can see when our seasonal food offerings will be available.

All our farmer’s are planting in May, but the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market will have early growing items like asparagus and scapes. When you come to our market in May– enjoy the crafts, baking and preserves while the ground warms up and the crops start to grow. Come and sample our jams and our pickles from Chridomar Gardens and Tasty Treats. If you have come before, you know you can’t resist our desserts from Grandma Garrett.

At the first of each month we will have “Artisan’s Day” where you can purchase from local talent offering their wares on those days. Famed local chef Dusty Pettes along with his wife Jessica from Prospect Market will be one of the new folks selling their items on Artisan Day!

This year we will have some new faces and will be offering naturally raised pasture finished Berkshire Pork from Rosehill Ranch. Then there is that fresh honey from Dunlop’s Honey and their exquisite honey cream that your skin just has to try.

Come and have a chat with some of our favourite returning farmers: Merle Bowes from Limekiln Gardens – – Ray Elgersma and Dave McGahey from White Oak Farm and– Darrylene Sadler from Our Hobby Farm. Of course Beckwith Berries with be there and then there are those chutney’s and other lovely tastes from John Sandberg.

There will be flowers this year from Two Fields Over and Patricia Darlington will have some of her great workshops. Whitehouse Perennial will be there, and don’t forget to come to our ‘transplant day’ June 4th where things will be going on at the CPFM from morning to night ending with our Farm to Fork dinner and dance that same day.
