Student Market Money Packages

Hey Students, Pass this info along to your parents as a great holiday gift idea!

Wolfville Farmers’ Market offers Student Market Money packages which are a great way for students to purchase fresh local groceries while also getting out into the community to enjoy some live music, perhaps attend a Market Supper, in an environment that nurtures community. Students are attracted to the Market for many reasons: many get involved as volunteers, enjoy the positive healthy intergenerational atmosphere,appreciate the environmental stewardship of our farmers, and our zeroing waste efforts. Many just like to get out in the community and get rejuvenated. See This Week at the Market to get a sense of all that is available at our twice weekly market.

How it Works

Fill in the following Student Market Dollar Sign-up Form to help us tailor the program to you or your student.

  1. Pay via e-transfer to accounts@wolfvillefarmersmarket.ca or Paypal

  2. The first time your student comes to the info booth to collect Market Money, they will get a package with details about the Market and the Market Pack.

  3. The first day of each month the Market will put the monthly amount purchased (in $5 denominations) into an envelope for your student which will be held at our Information Booth for pick-ups during the Market day by the Student. The Student will be able to divide the money up for a weekly collection, or pick it up monthly. The Market will take direction from the student about this; but will not hide anything from the person paying.

  4. Every time money is taken out of the envelope the student will sign a sheet we have at the Information Booth that they have taken this money, as a way for us to keep track.
