On May 2nd, the Peterborough Downtown Farmers’ Market will open for the 2018 season. This year, they will be shutting down the street between Louis St and George St., and transforming Charlotte into a pedestrian friendly, bustling Farmers’ Market every Wednesday between 8:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
This year marks the 21st year of bringing fresh locally grown seasonal produce and products to Downtown Peterborough. As a producers-only market, shoppers can be sure they are buying direct from the farmers, growers, bakers and Chefs themselves, and learn about diverse local produce as it comes into season.
Each Wednesday, market-goers will find a festive and lively market full of their favourite vendors selling seasonal produce, meats, cheese, fresh flowers, baked goods, art, plants to grow, coffee and lunches to go.
Along with monthly special events showcasing seasonal bounty, guest Chefs will provide samples, on-site cooking demonstrations, and innovative ideas on using market products throughout market season. The Downtown Farmers' Market season runs until October 31st.
