“Good market, lots of choice, great parking.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

This is a regular summer Farmers Market which incorporates a Garlic Festival in mid August. Produce is constantly reliable though not always the cheapest. Garlic bought in August and hung in cool place will last a full TWELVE MONTHS!! (Mine has for the last five years, stored around 19c.) parking is plentiful within the fairgrounds, don't try to park on the road, drive alongside the fence till you reach the drive-in entrance then drive into the grounds and park up close to the stalls. Handicapped parking very close to main buildings. For a snack, be sure to try the spring rolls cooked fresh on site. Lots of hot fresh snacks available.

“Bacon on a Bun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

While visiting the Ottawa area for the month of September one of the highlights of a relaxed Saturday morning was visiting the Carp market. Tons of colorful fascinating stalls both indoors and out loaded with local produce, crafts and other various goods. The food booths offered a nice variety, one being the quite popular Bacon on a Bun.

“Great country market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We visited on the weekend of the garlic festival. Lots of people were in attendance and all appeared to be having a great time. Summer produce was in abundance. There were many vendors selling local garlic. The food section had some interesting choices ranging from pouting to Thai. We enjoyed our time at the market and hope to return.
