Published May 31, 2023 at 11:46 am
Just in time for summer, the Brampton Farmers’ Market will return to the city’s downtown core starting Saturday, June 10.
Running from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday until October 7, a wide variety of local vendors, farmers and artisans will set up shop to offer freshly picked seasonal produce, handcrafted goods and more.
The vendors will be set up on Wellington Street West from George Street to Main Street South, as well as in Gage Park.
“The Brampton Farmers’ Market transforms our downtown every Saturday in the summer and is a can’t-miss staple event,” said Mayor Patrick Brown. “We look forward to welcoming back all the incredible farmers and vendors who make our community unique and contribute to the overall health and wellbeing of our City.”
A full list of vendors is available at the City’s website.
This year, the Farmers’ Market is presented by Meridian Credit Union and sponsored by Algoma University, Attrell Toyota and Flato Developments.
Those planning to drive to the market can park for free in the following garages and parking lots:
- Market Square Parking Garage (Theatre Lane & Union St.)
- John St. Parking Garage (16 John St.)
- West Tower Parking Garage (41 George St.)
- Nelson Square Parking Garage (9 Diplock Lane)
- George St. N. Surface Parking Lot (20 George St. N.)
Residents are reminded that the Brampton City Hall Parking Garage is under repair and will be closed from late June until late summer.
Additionally, road closures will be in effect due to the watermain and sanitary sewer replacement under Main Street South. Northbound Main Street South will be closed to all through traffic from Wellington to Queen Street, and a detour route will be clearly marked with road signs. Pedestrian access to businesses will be maintained, the City says.
Southbound Main Street South will remain open but will be reduced to one lane from just north of Queen Street to Wellington Street.
