The downtown farmers’ market is in the heart of the city, and it’s the epicenter for local food in Kingston.
Some cities can boast about a year round, indoor market. While we are currently lacking in that regard we can lay claim to the oldest farmers’ market in Ontario, ours having been established in 1801.
The market is run by the city and the Kingston Public Market Vendors Association. It takes place every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday in the market square behind City Hall (at the corner of Brock and Kings Street East).
Tuesdays and Thursday tend to be a little quiet, especially in the spring and fall months.
