Join us to celebrate our 2013 Opening Day, say hello to your favourite vendors, farmers’, bakers, artisans & friends, stock up on all the fresh-cut flowers, seasonal produce, crafts, syrup & honey, baked goods, meats & cheeses and lunches to go that you have missed.
Our Opening Day celebrations will include a Pancake Breakfast. Come on down to try samples of pancakes made with local ingredients like Merrylynd Farm’s Red Fife Wheat Flour, and topped with Batten’s Country Choice Maple Syrup & Deer Bay Farms strawberry preserves.
The Peterborough Downtown Farmers’ Market is a producers only market, which means, you are buying from the very people who grow or make the products they are selling, supporting our local economy & each week, market-goers can learn about and purchase diverse local produce as it comes into season. This year, the Downtown Farmers’ Market will also host special monthly events that feature local Chefs, samples, on-site cooking demonstrations, and innovative ideas on using the foods you purchase at the market.
