The Farmers' Market is Open!
As of May 16th, the Outdoor Farmers’ Market is open! It is important, especially now, that we support our local farmers and producers and we are proud to be a link between them and our local community. The Farmers’ Market will have to operate differently than usual, as the safety of our farmers, producers, customers, and staff is our priority. With approval from the Middlesex-London Health Unit, we will be implementing various precautionary measures.
At this time, many of our vendors are offering online sales and pre-orders as well!
