Cooking a delicious meal that’s also good for you is a great feeling. Farmers markets in Niagara Falls are great sources for fresh produce that not only excite the taste buds, but are also healthy and nutritious. More than convenient places to buy locally-grown and hand-picked fruits and vegetables, farmers markets are great locations to make new friends and explore hidden gems of the community. But where to begin? Panoramic Properties has rounded up the best markets near our Niagara Falls Apartments, and are excited to share the goodness.
Niagara Falls Farmers Market
Located just behind Niagara Falls History Museum, the Niagara Falls Farmers Market (5943 Sylvia Place) is open all year, every Saturday from 6 a.m. to noon. The market has been a staple in the region for more than 50 years, offering the best in fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, eggs and outdoor plants. A small building hosts up to four vendors, such as a butcher, and an outdoor area hosts up to 15. Only a seven-minute drive west from Katrina Court (6635 Thorold Stone Road), it’s a quick trip to indulge in locally-grown food any season of the year.
Brock University Farmers Market
Every Friday from June to September, take a break from the summer heat and visit the Brock University Farmers Market (500 Glenridge Avenue). Be entertained with live music while you shop for your pick of fresh goods or wet your whistle with delicious wine and locally-brewed beer. It’s a 15-minute drive west—or a 50-minute bus ride—from Katrina Court (6635 Thorold Stone Road). If hunger sets in while shopping for produce and crafts, take advantage of their barbecue while it grills up the best-cut meats.
Market at the Village
Every Wednesday from 4:30 p.m. to dusk, Market at the Village (111 Garrison Village Drive) gives locals and visitors an authentic community experience. All produce is 100% guaranteed to be grown in the Niagara Region by dedicated farmers. More than fresh produce, the market features oysters, cheese, artisan crafts, and live music. On select dates from June to August, satisfy your curiosity by having your antiques appraised at The Antique Market. It’s worth the 30-minute drive north from Weinbrenner Place (3401-3421 Weinbrenner Road) to get all the fixings you need at this genuine farmers market.
It’s a win-win when shopping at farmers markets. Keep your beautiful Panoramic Properties Apartments stocked with fresh foods while supporting local farmers.
A few friendly reminders: Don’t forget to bring cash as some vendors don’t accept debit or credit. Remember to have a few extra bags or boxes in case you end up buying more than you planned. Since many of the markets are outdoors, it’s also a good idea to bring sunscreen and water for those hot days. Most important, have fun!
