Downtown Farmer's Market to open for one-day teaser

  • Print

The Downtown Farmer’s Market will open up for business one day this spring, on March 27.

The spring farmers’ market from 10AM to 4PM at the Manitoba Hydro Place Gallery was touted by organizers today as a taste of what’s to come – with a summer market planned all summer long beginning June 5th and continuing every Thursday at Manitoba Hydro Place Plaza until October 9.

The popular Downtown BIZ’s farmers’ market offers freshly baked empanadas, panzerotti, perogies, vinegars, jams, pastured pork and chicken, home style Mexican salsa, gluten free macaroons, potatoes, bison meat, and preserves. People can expect new faces under the canopies and behind vendor tables this year, as well as our very loyal farmers returning for another season, the Downtown BIZ said in a statement. 

"With the absence of a full-line grocery store downtown, perhaps now is the time to think outside the box and into our local gardens, when it comes to food access in our city’s core," said Stefano Grande, executive director of the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ.

"Farmers’ markets not only help support the local economy, they reduce transportation costs and food waste. They help create a unique destination for downtown residents, office workers, students, and tourists – adding vibrancy to our streets and sidewalks and attracting business for downtown stores and restaurants nearby."

Manitoba Hydro Place is located at 360 Portage Avenue.
