Our Story

The Nikkei Garden Farmers Market was established in 2021 in hopes of engaging with the local community during challenging times. Thanks to participating vendor and visitors for making this a successful event. We are able to connect with the community, support local businesses, promote sustainability, and contribute to healthier communities. The NGFM has a unique Japanese flavour to it -- here, you can pick up Japanese vegetables, treats, and handmade products. We also like to partner with various businesses and organizations to grow our community.

Our farmers' market would not be what it is without all of you, our vendors, volunteers, and guests who come out to support not only us, but each other. We promise to continue striving to create a thriving community together.
