Find fresh and local vegetables and fruits, baking, preserves, meat, fish, cheese, crafts, jewelry, and other food and artisan items at this year-round Farmers’ Market in the heart of downtown.
You can find the Market indoors at Cityplace (333 St. Mary Ave) from October to May. From June to September, find the Farmers’ Market outside at True North Square (242 Hargrave St). Markets run Thursdays from 10:00 am – 2:30 pm.
In an effort to continue to bring value to downtown, and to help downtown businesses by holding events safely, the Farmers’ Market will be returning February 11th at Cityplace from 10:00-2:30.
Based on current public health guidelines, the market is safe to open.
We recognize it’s important that we create the safest shopping experience for the public, our vendors and our staff. Which is why the following guidelines will be in place at the Downtown Winnipeg Farmers’ Market:
-Masks are mandatory for anyone visiting Cityplace and anyone in the market spaces. Masks must be worn properly, covering both mouth and nose. Shields must be worn with a mask underneath.
-We will be operating at 50% of the usual space capacity at all times and limiting entry when needed.
-All handheld POS machines will be wiped down after each use.
-Vendors will be spaced out with a minimum of 2 metres in between booths to give shoppers space to safely move around each other and practice physical distancing.
-Designated entrances and exits have been implemented for proper flow of traffic.
-Hand sanitizer will be provided for all customers before entering the market.
-Directional signage on the ground throughout the market spaces have been placed to encourage safe flow of traffic in space.
-All product sampling is suspended.
– Signage is displayed reminding visitors of flu-avoidance etiquette, and to maintain physical distancing.
While we all know how enjoyable it is to visit with our market vendors, we please ask that you come and shop with a purpose and limit your social interactions in the space.
Update: The indoor season of our Farmers’ Market has wrapped up! While we have succeeded at bringing downtown a safe farmers’ market experience these past 3 months, we feel it’s best that we do our part and postpone the market until we can hold it outdoors in June.
We appreciate all the support our downtown community has shown the market and the vendors since our return in February. Thank you to Cityplace Mall for hosting us. If possible, please continue to support local vendors and businesses however you can.
We plan to be back in June with fresh baking, gourmet sauces, locally made liquor, preserves, bison, prairie raw honey, handmade crafts, jewelry, and so much more at our Farmers’ Market in the heart of downtown! Please keep an eye on our social media and website for market updates.
Stay safe and we will see you soon.
