Love YOUR Market

10C continues to play a leadership role in reimagining important Guelph community spaces. We are now years into the transformation and reactivation of the historical Ackers’ Furniture building into our main offering at 42 Carden Street, and it is more alive with community than ever!

In 2022, 10C assumed the stewardship of the Guelph Farmers’ Market, where we are working to reinvigorate this 200 year old Guelph landmark, while envisioning and creating new spaces to gather and celebrate local food and community connection.

These projects don’t happen by accident and they don’t happen on their own. They happen with intent and inspiration – with purpose and passion.

10C is leading the Guelph Farmers’ Market through its first major renovation in nearly 200 years with the installation of a shared commercial kitchen, fully accessible barrier-free washrooms and plans for a new main entrance and back lot gathering space enhancements. All of this helps us to animate the site on all days of the week, year-round. We dream of hosting community festivals, so many unique events, and moving towards offering a Farmers’ Market on other days of the week in addition to the mainstay Saturday market.

The transformation of this community asset into a place that is ready to support gatherings and opportunities of all kinds has been an incredible undertaking. We are looking for community partners to help support the final stages of this work.

10C’s goal is to raise $500,000 in community contributions and sponsorships to support improvements to both the infrastructure and the programming offered at the Market
