About the market

Snowy weather is right around the corner, which means we’re all dreaming of sipping on a steaming cup of hot chocolate amid a flurry of joyful Winter Market shoppers.


Evergreen’s Winter Market is a place to connect with strangers and friends alike. A place for interactions that spark joy. A place for everyone to come together and experience the magic of the season.


Ontario Artisan Market and Ontario Vintage Market will be joining us again this year. We’ll also have a food court and food trucks selling mouth-watering food and drinks. And that’s not all – you can also expect children’s activities, Nature Play, live performances and so much more.



This year is a “Pay What You Can Market”, meaning that we are asking attendees to pay what they are willing/able to when they get to the market. This allows everyone to still be able to attend also helps us raise funds that go directly back to running the site and towards beloved programming like Free Public Skating and Weekend Nature Play.


Don’t forget to add this market to your winter bucket list!

Her voice mingles down to earth Folk with shimmering Jazz, akin to Eva Cassidy. Her uplifting vocal style ranges from Jazz to Americana and her warm stage presence is nothing short of effervescent. “She has one of the sunniest smiles I’ve encountered and a voice that reflects that sunny outlook.”
