Farmers' Market moves outdoors every Saturday

Apr 24, 2017 | Communications | General

The Orangeville Farmers’ Market opens for the outdoor season on Saturday, May 6th at 8 a.m.

Local food is a hot topic and the movement is gaining momentum as more people recognize the benefits of eating food grown or raised close to home.  Now in its 27th year of celebrating local food, the Orangeville Farmers’ Market has a long history of offering a wide variety of fresh from farm vegetables, fruit, meats, and treats.  The only way to find fresher food closer to home is to grow it yourself. Local food tastes even better when it’s paired with local fun! 

Due to forecasted high winds on May 6, the market will still operate but the opening day festivities will move to May 13.  Representatives of Orangeville Insurance are looking forward to flipping some flapjacks at the free pancake breakfast from 8-11 a.m. on May 13.  Connect with your community, enjoy some live music, treat the kids to a pony ride, or indulge them with free face painting courtesy of the Businesses and Merchants of Downtown Orangeville and then shop the market at your leisure.  Be sure to visit Orangeville Hydro at the market and take advantage of their free bucket trucks rides.  Market Saturdays are special – celebrate small town living and get to know your community all while supporting our local economy and treating yourself and your family to better food.

If you live in Orangeville or the surrounding area you already know that Downtown Orangeville has a lot going for it – it’s a big part of why so many families relocate here or why so many have stayed for generations.  Beyond its beauty and character, Downtown Orangeville has lots of great locally owned stores and restaurants as well as a vast array of service businesses to help you with whatever you need.  We have truly wonderful art; superb live, professional theatre; great live music; and a spectacular train ride just around the corner.  Go ahead and give yourself an excuse to come downtown and treat yourself to something special, a great coffee, something fabulous for yourself or something beautiful and practical for your home.  Support your business neighbours and Live Local, Buy Local. Visit the market every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Broadway and Second Street.
