YFM is your Local, Seasonal, Farm Fresh Market! We are open June 1 - October 31 each year! We open with the first of the local strawberries and we close with apples and squash!
From a roadside stand on Highway 59, Your Farm Market has evolved into a popular and trusted summer landmark for those who love locally produced goods. We (the McKays) began selling our own sweet corn in 1997 on the back of our grandfather’s property. After 3 years of only selling corn, we decided we may as well bring in some other produce to sell. We added in melons & tomatoes from Rob Chesney in Innerkip, potatoes from Drumbo, and a few other local fruits and vegetables. After being on the highway for a number of years, we tried out a few different locations in Woodstock, selling mainly our sweet corn and and a bit of other produce from other local farmers and neighbours. In 2002 our oldest sister Lisa opened a small stand on Devonshire Ave in the RWF parking lot. When construction was scheduled for Devonshire for summer 2004, we decided collectively that it was a good time to move. In 2004 we started a new stand on Springbank Ave in front of the Home Hardware parking lot, and it took off. Each year sales were up over the year before. All 4 sisters (Lisa, Colleen, Laura and Katie) worked together to grow the Springbank market. In 2009, after the Home Hardware on Springbank Ave closed, we moved around the corner to the Dundas St Home Hardware Building Centre. This was the year that we added Anna Mae's baking 3 days a week. In 2012 we added a food trailer to provide fresh lunches and to-go salads in the market, featuring what is locally and seasonally available. The market has continued to grow year after year. In 2014 we began getting Anna Mae’s baking 5 days a week to keep up with popular demand. We have been blessed with amazing customers who love to share us with friends, and thank each and every customer who has helped make Your Farm Market who we are today!
