It isn’t long now till the Farmers Market Opens!
Over time the Market has been located in a couple of different spots in town, but since 1990 it has been operating on beautiful Main St in the downtown core within sight of our scenic Niagara Escarpment. Opening May 18th and runs every Saturday from 7am to 12pm thru until October 12th. (excluding June 1st)
The market brings old fashioned hospitality loaded with farm fresh goodness to down town Milton with over 40 Vendors including;
- Famers promising “fresh picked this morning” produce
- Organically grown produce
- Preserves, jams, honey and cider
- Breads and baked goods
- Meats and cheeses
- Flowers and plants
- Crafts and pottery
- Ethnic and specialty foods
- A few little extras with local musicians and special events held by local Non Profit Organizations
Very deserving of a special mention is the Chamber Scholarship Café, the Café generates funds for the Chamber Scholarship Fund which offers annual scholarships to all local high schools and is operated by the Chamber. It’s home to the “bacon-on-a-bun” and has good fresh coffee so it’s a great breakfast for a great cause!Since 1990, the Milton Chamber of Commerce has offered $1,000 scholarships to students attending their first year of post-secondary education, one for a student from each Milton high school including E.C. Drury for the Deaf, one for a son or daughter of a Chamber member and one for high school student registered in an Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program.
On Saturday mornings Main St will be closed between James and Martin Streets to accommodate the 40+ Vendors and the 1000-1500 visitors who shop there every week so come by for a stroll and discover what our lovely farmers market has to offer.
