We have been extremely honoured to call the Downtown Wednesday Market our home for the past eight years. It is truly an essential part of our food community and a true growers market. It is also a great jumping off point for eating, drinking, and learning about local foods and beverages.

About the market:

“The Wednesday Market has been the best place to buy local produce and products in Downtown Peterborough since 1997. The market, initially located on Charlotte Street between Water and George Streets, moved to the Louis Street Parking Lot in 2011. The market expanded with that move, and now has over 50 stalls and 33 vendors at peak season. In 2018 the market moved onto Charlotte St. between Louis and George in anticipation of our move back to the Urban Park in the old Louis St. Lot location.”

“As a producers only market, shoppers can be sure that they are purchasing directly from the farmers, bakers, and producers themselves. Not only do shoppers help support our local economy, they can also be assured they are buying the freshest seasonal products available in the region.”

Peterborough Regional Farmers’ Market

We’ve just entered partnership with the new Downtown Saturday market to offer events/tours that will showcase both local growers and local restaurants and business that work with/purchase from local growers. It will be an entertaining (and tasty) way to celebrate our food community. Look for news in the coming weeks about these events.

About the Market:

“Buy directly from the farmer who grew it, raised it, harvested, or foraged it.

Sixty percent of our vendors are primary producers who have gone through a third party inspection process to verify they grow 100% of what they sell. The remaining forty percent include bakers, prepared food vendors, artists and community groups.”

The Peterborough Regional Farmers’ Market is located at the AON Citi Centre, on the corner of Charlotte and Aylmer in downtown Peterborough.
