"I found that Yukoners are looking to purchase fresh produce and locally made products. The Fireweed Market seems to be a very good venue through which to supply these products. Every week I sold out of the vegetables I brought, and many weeks, I sold out of preserves." P. Bort, Dusty Trail Yukon.
"Since we joined the society in 2011, we have not missed a single market. This is the bread and butter of our operation, as well as an unbeatable arena to promote, not only our business, but also our passion for a local food network involving farmers, processors and consumers." B. Bounds, Elemental Farm.
"The Fireweed Market creates a sense of community between vendors that impacts how they do business. The attitude of “we all succeed together” encourages team work between local business and encourages us to seek success not just for ourselves but for the community as a whole." K. Morrison, Blackbird Bakery.
"The Fireweed Community markets give vendors a good backbone to start their business. It has an excellent customer base and the regular business hours and location offer a continuity to customers that new businesses might struggle to provide in the beginning." K. Young, Klondike Kettle Corn
"What I enjoy most about offering a [haiku] workshop is when I see how my encouragement & support leads to the writing of new work that would not have otherwise been written - whether by an established writer or an emerging new voice. It is extremely rewarding, & by providing me with the opportunity, the Fireweed Community Market Society helps me to accomplish this!" K. Munro, workshop leader.
"I loved going to your market while I was staying in Whitehorse. I think you're doing a great job! I wanted to share with you a video about sustainable food access as a community project in partnership with the municipality, a project initiated by a non profit org. in Québec, called EURÊKO ..." Johanne, Montreal.
