A Visit to Dunnville Farmers Market


It's been quite a while since I've been to a new farmers market, but when I spent a week down visiting Dad & Trevor, we went off to the Dunnville Farmers Market. It's in a nice open-air but roofed building right near the Grand River. It's officially located on Market Street beside the Arena, and runs from March until the end of December, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, from 7:00 am to 12:00 pm. 


There are quite a few general produce farmers in the area, and there is a good selection.


More veggies, and some local crafts as well.


Melons! And looks like we could have gone to a giant corn maze, had our tastes so run...


Eggs, jam, honey... all the usual local Ontario farm stuff is here.


Including quite a lot of fruit from Niagara which is not that far away.


Even the flowers are local.


Maple syrup, baked goods...


Mmm, bluebobs! Yes please!


The site is really close, as noted, to the mouth of the Grand River - and by the time it hits Dunnville, it really is quite Grand - and there is a nice little park there in which you could enjoy some of your market finds.

Hi Ferdzy,

I discovered your blog about a week ago and have been reading from the start. I love how you showcase local farmers' markets and businesses. It was a real treat to see you had visited the Dunnville farmers' market. Dunnville is my home town. I moved away 40 years ago, but I still get down about once a month to visit my father, although I've never taken the time to go to the market. Maybe next time!
