    We celebrate Yukon culture at our markets 'where local happens'.

    About Us

    Our Mission

    We promote the production and consumption of Yukon products. We offer authentic experiences to residents and tourists by supporting local entrepreneurs and small businesses and directly connecting consumers with producers of quality goods that are locally grown, raised, wild-harvested, or hand-crafted.

    Our Team

    Since 2005, a volunteer board has guided the strategic and operational success of our non-profit society, with the support of part-time and seasonal staff, over 170 members and 100 volunteers annually, and long-term funding from the Canadian Agricultural Partnership program.
