One of the best things about spring is the fact that farmers’ markets begin opening up everywhere.
Peterborough is no exception. Home to our award-winning Avonlea community, this great town has more than its share of great farmers’ markets.
Consider this list:
- Peterborough and District Farmers’ Market: This one is open year-round, but will only come outdoors and away from the heated indoors area on April 30th. This weekend, it will host an event called MapleFest Pancake Breakfast. I don’t know about you, but the name alone makes me want to go!
Hours: Saturdays from 7 am to 1 pm
Location: the Morrow Building & Parking Lot at the Corner of Lansdowne Street and Roger Neilson Way
- Peterborough Downtown Farmers’ Market: A popular farmers’ market whose vendors sell fresh flowers, plants, produce, kettle corn, sweets and crafts.
Hours (from May 2 to October 3): Wednesdays from 8:30 am to 2 pm.
Location: the Louis Street Parking Lot (on the corner of Charlotte Street and Aylmer Street)
