We had such a great time walking to and exploring this little market. Gursha Ethiopian booth was an absolute hit, as was Peacetle smoothies ... I made a suggestion for a smoothie and she loved it so much it's going on her permanent menu. Great experience, great little market.

Not much of a farmers market when we came around lunch time on a Saturday in June.
Outside there were maybe two stands selling plants, one or two with a small assortment of veggies and then indoors food stalls and handcrafted / homemade goods.

It was still worth having lunch and I must say I had the best Shawarma so far!
Be prepared to be entirely undecided food wise because it’s all different and all mouthwatering.

Great ethnic foods, local artists and baked goods. There is a que due to Covid regulations so be patient. Plenty of free parking. Circle twice to make sure you didn't miss anything 💯

I didn't realize how many people in the area went to the farmers market. I imagined 20 something hipsters or 60 something boomers.
Go early for better parking, not too early or some of the food vendors might not be ready to serve. It's not a big venue but has grown since the last time I visited in 2011.
I recommend any of the food vendors sampled most everything.
The homemade bread is super delicious.
Bring cash as they don't have debit.

I was a bit underwhelmed with the market. It was about a 30 minute walk from the downtown area and was packed. There were perhaps 20 vendors inside, local craft type things, some of them were lovely and fair prices. It was a bit early in the season for produce but there were some booths outdoors and a couple inside. The food area was interesting, lots of ethnic food (Jamaican, Indian, Syrian, Ethiopian, Jewish). I had the Jamaican and it was very good. The market is small and even with sitting and eating I was out of there in well under an hour. If it’s convenient, for sure go, but I wouldn’t go out of my way.

A great way to support local producers and try exotic food while sharing with members of your community. The space is very organized and provides several options from food stands, crafts, donating causes and agricultural products to take home instead of the usual not-so-organic grocery shop. Prices are a bit high but fair considering the context and purpose.

We heard so much about this marketplace that it was a must for us to visit, but we didn’t buy anything because everything was very expensive, still it was an attraction that I’m glad we visited

A great place to spend several hours browsing the various types of foods offered by very diverse multi-cultural vendors

First impressions were decorated with maple leaves hanging from the ceiling which I learned later were made by school children for Canada's 150 Ann. Had my first taste of dulce (red seaweed) which Canadians eat like potato chips or in salads. It's something you either like or you don't. There is a really yummy French bakery inside. Places to order a lunch. I tried a lobster roll from a fairly new vendor which was essentially just lobster on a hotdog bun. All lobster meat, no mayo.
