RULES & REGULATIONS
The Mountjoy farmers Market is managed by the Porcupine District Agricultural Society. They will approve vendors, enforce rules/regulations, approve vendors spots, promote the market and have a designated representative present on each market date.
Due to the changes in the world’s current situation of COVID 19 we have had to make a few changes to this year’s farmers market to comply with government regulations’ and for the health and safety of customers and vendors.
