Peterborough’s newest Saturday farmers’ market, the Peterborough Regional Farmers’ Market, has moved indoors for the winter.

The first market at the new location — on the lower level of Peterborough Square in downtown Peterborough — will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, November 3rd.

The first indoor market will feature kick-off activities, including a clown and buskers.

The new indoor location, which was previously occupied by the Peterborough Public Library while the Aylmer Street branch was undergoing construction, has been renovated to accommodate the market. The elevator from the underground parking in Peterborough Square also includes wraps to promote the new winter location.

The winter farmers’ market will build on the success of the summer market, with all primary producers verified as selling only what they have grown, raised, or produced. Craft and prepared food vendors will also be in the new space at Peterborough Square (see list below), along with an expanded kids’ area.

Now that the Wednesday Peterborough Downtown Farmers’ Market has ended for the season, the Saturday market at Peterborough Square is the only farmers’ market operating downtown during the winter (the farmers’ market inside the Morrow Building next to the Peterborough Memorial Centre also operates on Saturdays during the winter).

The Peterborough Regional Farmers’ Market will return to its outdoor location at Citi Centre in downtown Peterborough in April 2019.
