Farmers’ Markets Across Niagara

Farmers market

The climate in Niagara is well-known to be an important aspect of our viticulture, but it also has an incredible impact on the rest of our agricultural enterprise as well. Since Niagara is located between two Great Lakes, the temperatures are fairly moderated throughout the year and combining this with rich soils, it creates the ideal conditions for growing tender fruit.

An excellent way to experience the produce Niagara has to offer is by visiting one of the many local Farmers’ Markets that operate throughout the year. Shoppers have the opportunity to buy farm-fresh fruits and vegetables directly from the people producing them and farmers are able to connect with customers and have a little fun while creating an important source of income.

St. Catharines Farmers’ Market
Open Year Round

The St. Catharines Market has been an important element of the City’s social and economic landscape since the early 1860s.  Nestled next to the historic Courthouse and City Hall – at the corner of King and James in the heart of Downtown St. Catharines – expect the best in Niagara cuisine at the St. Catharines Farmers Market .

The St. Catharines Farmers Market isn’t just for your fruits and vegetables (although those items alone are enough reason to pay a visit). In addition to fresh produce, shoppers will find baked goods and fresh bread, European meats, seafood, chicken, beef, Lebanese and Mexican foods, honey, fresh-cut and potted flowers, gourmet spices, homemade jams, preserves and jewelry.

St. Catharines Farmers’ Market has it all – visit us for a list of upcoming Market Square Events.

Welland’s Market Square
Open Year Round

Local Farmers proudly share the excitement and flavour of the Welland Farmers’ Market with you. They’ve been luring locals and tourists every Saturday to the Market since 1907, with shelves of fresh fruits and vegetables, tasty meats, natural cheeses, local artisans, and baked goods.

The Welland Farmers’ Market is a community place where vendors and patrons respect each other. Vendors at the Welland Farmers’ Market develop community and sell quality products. We endeavour to create an environment which promotes creativity, openness, and cooperation, to celebrate the local talent and expertise that is showcased at the Market.

Welland is Home to the Largest Farmers’ Market in the Niagara Region!
