Brockville Farmers’ Market
The farmers’ market is back for another season!

You can buy a wide array of produce and locally produced goods, knowing you are supporting the local economy.
The farmers’ market takes place every Thursday and Saturday from 8am to 1pm, and will run until late fall. This Saturday, May 4th is the official opening of the season, so make sure you’re at Market Square next to city hall to get a first look at everything available this year!
