Thorold has created a new Community Market this summer, running every Wednesday night, and is kicking things off with a grand opening celebration on June 7.

The City has invited local vendors and community organizations to participate in this exciting new community initiative. Residents and visitors will enjoy an array of local shopping experiences, including farm stands, artisans, bakers and other local businesses.

The free market will run every Wednesday between June and August from 5 to 9 p.m. at Battle of Beaverdams Park.

“The goal of the Thorold Community Market is to support local businesses and cultivate resident engagement and Community pride,” says Mayor Terry Ugulini.

“Each week, we will be inviting a community organization who provides meaningful services to the city to be featured at our community booth, where they will have the opportunity to showcase their services to people at the market. This is a great opportunity for residents and visitors to connect with local organizations and support Niagara businesses.”

The grand opening will include a special musical performance by well-known Niagara party band, The Figure Four, and family entertainment, including face painting and balloon twisting.

Thorold CAO Manoj Dilwaria noted, “Our team has been working closely with community stakeholders and volunteers over the last few months to organize this event for our community.”

The City is still accepting applications for vendors, entertainers, community groups and sponsors throughout the summer.
