Whether you’re a new visitor to our region, or you have long since acquired a taste for our true Canadian cottage country experience, the Peterborough Farmers Market offers up some of the most fabulous flavours of summertime in the Kawarthas.
Sink your teeth into fresh local ingredients. They’ve got everything from beans to melons, from berries to broccoli. Have you ever tasted anything sweeter than a freshly picked strawberry from a farm just down the road? Other year-round offerings include meat and dairy, honey, country baked goods, jams and jellies, and other snacks and treats. They even boast beautiful hand crafts. And your morning caffeine hit with a local flavour.
The Peterborough Farmers Market takes place every Saturday year round from 7am – 1pm. The establishment of a central market area for individual trade or sales has been a feature of societies all over the world for centuries. This trade has taken place in Peterborough for the past 185 years. This efficient method of commerce has gained much interest in recent years as small businesses have grown. At the Peterborough Farmers’ Market they are proud to be part of this popular phenomenon.
As producers of local food and crafts, they stress freshness, quality and value as they deal each and every week with market patrons. Come and enjoy this traditional shopping experience.
