Thank you for your review! I always recommend people come HUNGRY no matter what time of day they come. In the morning don't stop at Tim Horton's, we have coffee brewed from a local roaster, hot breakfast and donuts for a snack. Lunch and snack options galore!

I have been many times and there's pretty much everything you can imagine a flea market might have. Lots of parking but gets crowded.
The downside can be smokers, double baby carriage pushers and lots of dogs (mostly well-behaved)
Large indoor area and covered stalls outside.....a great stop if you like that sort of thing...
Hot dogs and cold beer!!!!

The Pinery has lots of vendors to shop and is pet friendly too. Fast food, entertainers, antiques, unique items... it is all there. Lots of parking and there is a police directing traffic on really busy week ends. Only open on Sundays. A great way to spend a day strolling through the tall pines trees on a Sunday. Take the dog, there are lots of others with the dogs on leads too.

With all we've heard of this place, we were looking forward to visiting during our current trip to grand bend. First the fact that they actually make you pay a cover charge per head to park your car was already a strike against them, but we saw tons of vendors and a big crowd so we decided to give it a try. Anyone describing this as an antique market would be lying to you. There is very little antiques to be found and most of this is common flea market trash..people selling Tupperware and fidget spinners. Some of the food vendors were very good and we did pick up a bunch of groceries for the week. If you need to drive more than 15 minutes to get here, dont bother

So in our travels today we stopped in to this must stop in antique market.
For starters they charge you to park. Not per car but a dollar per person. Not impressed.
It a hodgepodge of people trying to sell their old stuff, but no one really wants it.
There area few thing there worth the stop, but overall, kind of a waste of time.

Reselling packaged goods should not be allowed here. Only artful, handcrafted, or hard to find objects from the past should be sold, and there are less and less of these every year.

I think it's absurd that you could buy Scentsy candles, and plastic shoes or leather goods from China. I really don't think even the sheets that are available there are made in Canada.

There should be more vendors selling things like the welded fire pits with cutouts of your favorite hockey team, or the homemade furniture custom painted for you.

I'm sorry you were disappointed, but I'm glad you did find some of our vendors that interested you. I am always looking for more had crafted Vendors however, we try to offer a wide selection of vendors so that there is something for everyone at the Market. Remember many of the unique vendors only come once in while so you may have missed them the day you were there.

This is a great way to spend an hour or so on a Sunday morning if you’re in the area. Lots of little stalls and food trucks.

We had a couple of hours to kill on Sunday morning so as we love a market thought we would pop by. Honestly were we not getting on a plane we would have spent hundreds of dollars! So much stuff some your usual toot but some real finds.
Worth a visit, free parking but $1 per person entry.

There's lots of see here, vendors with everything from antique tools to pickles on a stick (you need one, trust me), dog treats, handmade soap and my personal fav carnival glass. Get yourself a bag of doughnuts made on the spot to snack on while you browse; easy to lose yourself for a couple hours in amongst all the stalls.

Came home with a nice rack of juvenile moose antlers and a whitetail rack for the office, some lavender soap and some silly stickers. Even if you're not buying, can't think of a better way to spend $1!

If you are in Grand Bend on a Sunday, you definitely have to hit up the Pinery Market. There are vendors from all over. So many samples to try as well. Pepperettes are always a hit! Lots of cool local items, food, antiques. Definitely recommend coming early for parking and to see the best stuff!

Thank you for your review! So many things to see each week and it is always changing as we have many vendors who just come come a few times per year. Yes I agree with the come early tip! Ideally come early 8-10 or in the afternoon 2-4 to avoid the peak time. The afternoon shift is fun because the live music is playing and the bar is open to finish off your shopping with a craft beer or a glass of local cider or wine.
