Farmers’ Market opens May 24

Three volunteers with the Farmers' Market, wearing their face masks, stand behind a sign outlining the COVID-19 rules for attending the market, taken at the 2020 market outdoors on the Sorauren Town Square.
The Farmers’ Market ran outdoors in the summer of 2020 under COVID-19 protocols.

Note: An earlier version of this article referenced a May 3 opening date. The Market will not open on May 3, and instead will open May 24.

The Sorauren Farmers’ Market is planning to open on Victoria Day, Monday, May 24, outdoors on the park’s Town Square. The Market’s normal outdoor schedule is 3 – 7 pm every Monday.

In normal years the Market moves from its winter home indoors at the Sorauren Fieldhouse to its outdoor home in the park in late May. Pandemic conditions prevented the winter market from opening this past season, replaced by the Farm Box program which has now wrapped up.

Follow Sorauren Farmers’ Market on social media for updates, or visit the Market website. The Market is produced by the Sorauren Farmers’ Market Association.

Farmers Market open every Monday 3 – 7 pm

Your reminder the Sorauren Park Farmers Market has returned to the park’s Town Square at the usual time, 3-7 pm on Mondays.

Sorauren Farmers Market reopens July 6

Wear your masks at the Market

After many months of closure due to the pandemic, the Sorauren Farmers Market got the green light and will reopen in Sorauren Park at the usual time, 3-7 pm on Mondays on the Town Square.

COVID-19 means farmers’ markets will look and feel a little different with special physical distancing and hygiene protocols. You might not be able to see the smile on your favourite vendor’s face because of their mask, but please know they have missed you and are very happy to see you!

To comply with Public Health recommendations please note the following:
● Shop quickly, ideally one person per household
● If you are unwell, stay home
● Wear a mask
● Maintain a safe distance from others, be patient and kind – this is challenging for everyone
● Please pre-order with vendors online – this way you can visit the pre-order pick-up window for a speedy visit
● Follow the one-way direction of the Market
● Please do not touch the food – your vendor will pack for you
● No eating in the Market area – take your food and eat at home or in the park.
