Market Guidelines

We aim to connect you to great local food and makers, safely. Read our market guidelines so you’re ready for market day.

Market moves back outdoors with online orders highly encouraged - November 26, 2020

We continue to bring you fresh, local food from our farmers and producers. The Saturday Farmers Market will return to its outdoor space in the Pavilions. The market is scheduled to operate from 8am to 1pm. Please note that the location may change week to week as we continue to adapt.

Come keep our vendors warm with your support!

We will continue to do all that we can to work with our vendors, community and the market network across the city to provide residents with access to fresh, healthy and local food during this winter season.  

Market Pick-Up

Whenever possible, we highly encourage online ordering. Your market orders will be pre-packaged and ready to take home in a new pickup location outside of the market space.

Pre-order by Thursday at noon for pick-up Saturday.

Help us protect our visitors, staff and farmers. Do not shop at the market if you:

  • Are experiencing any COVID-related symptoms, such as fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, or are feeling ill in any other way; 
  • Have recently travelled outside of Canada (last 14 days); 
  • Have had contact with a probable, or confirmed, case of COVID-19; or 
  • Are awaiting testing or test results for COVID-19

Please be patient. In accordance with physical distancing guidelines, vendors will be positioned 2 metres apart and there will be a limited number of people allowed in the market at once. This means potential wait times to keep us safer!

Pick your shoppers. Individual groups of a maximum size of 2 are permitted in the market space. Other members of your group can wait for you outside the market.  

Service animals only. Dogs are not permitted this season. We love our furry friends but they aren’t good at physical distancing!  

Mask up. Masks are mandatory, please bring your own or purchase one outside of the market before entering.

Keep things clean. Remember to sanitize your hands when you enter the market space. Our vendors and market staff are sanitizing regularly to keep the space disinfected.  

Pick up online orders outside. With the market indoors for winter, online orders will be ready for pick up outside the market in the East Parking Lot. This means a cashless, minimal contact, faster shopping experience!

Keep your distance. Always maintain a physical distance of 6 feet from other shoppers and staff. That’s the equivalent of 3 snapping turtles!  

Follow the arrows. We have a one-way system to avoid any crowding. Look at the arrows on the ground to help you along the way.  

Hands to yourself. Vendors will put together all the items you wish to purchase, so there is no need for you to touch produce or goods unless purchasing.  

Shop speedy. Please try to keep your shopping time to no more than 20 minutes. This helps us to connect others to great local vendors, and minimize risk of transmission.
