The Peterborough Regional Farmers Market, which launched at the outdoor Citi Centre, has found a winter home within Peterborough Square. The community can follow their favourite local farmers and market vendors inside for the winter months, from November to April, as the space is transformed into a vibrant and abundant farmers’ market.
“The owners of the mall are totally committed to welcoming the Farmers’ Market to their building," says Cheryl McQueen, Peterborough Square Manager. "They see it as a return to the roots of the Farmers’ Market in Peterborough.” (The original Farmers’ Market in Peterborough was held onsite in the Market Hall.)

“The location is perfect for a market,” says Julie Fleming from Circle Organic Community Farm. “It’s central, accessible and familiar to everyone. I have taken my kids to movies at Galaxy Cinema and you use the same parking lot. Take the blue Galaxy Cinema doors upstairs from the parking garage, exit at the first level doors, and you’re right at the new Farmers’ Market."
“Parking is free on the weekends and because the parking lot is heated you can leave your winter coat in your car after you park to make your market experience even easier,” adds Fleming.
The Peterborough Regional Farmers Market will continue at its summer home at Citi Centre until the end of October and then move to Peterborough Square for its winter location.
