2021 Outdoor Summer Market

The 2021 Outdoor Summer Market Has Arrived!

The Ottawa Farmers’ Market’s 2021 Outdoor Summer Market launches on May 2nd!  The Summer Market will run from May 2nd to October 31st every Sunday from 9AM – 3PM in the Casino Lac-Leamy Plaza.

The Summer Market features 50+ artisans and farmers, who produce their edible goods and intricate crafts within a 100-km distance from the City of Ottawa. The market showcases the best of this region, with many agricultural, craft, baked goods, personal care products, and prepared food artisans in attendance. Each of the market vendors is committed to providing the freshest local products the season has to offer, including grocery staples such as fruits and vegetables, eggs, fresh bread, dairy, meat, marinades, and preserves!

Market staff have been working closely with public health officials to create protocols to help make the market the safest source of fresh, local food possible while we strive to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Ottawa.
