Another exciting development from OEF/CTI is the imminent return of the highly-acclaimed “We Farmers Market” at the Rock Sound Campus. This collaborative agricultural event has attracted the participation of over two dozen local farmers, food manufacturers, artisans, entrepreneurs, and craft makers from across the length and breadth of Eleuthera. Housed in both an open-air pavilion and pop-up tents spread across the grounds of CTI, this signature farmer’s market event provides a safe, socially distanced, and easily navigated experience for shoppers. Here, guests can find the freshest, farm-to-table produce and authentic Bahamian wares and craft items every 2nd and last Saturday of the month.

“Riding on the momentum of the market’s successful summer launch, the fall installment of “We Farmers Market” starts on Saturday, November 13th, and promises to deliver more of what patrons love and expect. This fall’s growing season is expected to produce a robust and hearty harvest of fresh, hand-picked vegetables, fragrant herbs, and vibrant plants for sale from CTI and our participating farmers,” cites Deon Gibson, Agricultural Manager at CTI.

With the growing list of vendors and farmers signing up to showcase and sell their goods, locals and visitors can expect to discover even more to sample, see, shop, and enjoy leading into the 2021 Holiday Season. For information on becoming a vendor, email: ctifarm@oneeleutherafoundation.org
