Ottawa Farmers’ Market: Winter Market

We are so excited to announce that the Ottawa Farmers’ Market is ringing in the new year with their first market of 2021 at Lansdowne! As an essential service and vital source of local food for the community, the Ottawa Farmers’ Market Winter Market will be open for in-person shopping inside the Aberdeen Pavilion every Sunday from 10AM – 3PM now until April 25th.

The Winter 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 their 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!
