Since the early 1860s, the St. Catharines Farmers Market has delivered the best Niagara grows, bakes and makes to the centre of the city.
Visit Market Square in Downtown St. Catharines to buy fresh, local foods and hand-made items and to connect with those who grow and produce the meats, fruits, vegetables and baked goods that end up on the plate. The farmer’s market provides a chance to eat fresh, shop local and learn from those in the know.
