Our Story

Our Story

In 2009  The Agricultural Advisory Committee for Haldimand County felt that a Farmers' Market in Caledonia was needed.  In 2011 the market was moved to the Canadian Tire parking lot. However, 2023 the  market was moved back to the fairgrounds at 151 Caithness Street East.

Come rain or shine, every Thursdays  from 2-7pm you will find  local farmers with various fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, maple syrup, honey and  specialty products  all available for your culinary pleasure.  During  inclement weather, the market will take place inside the Riverside Exhibition Centre.

Agriculture is an important part of the local economy in Haldimand County and the market is run by farmers who have local fresh food waiting for you.   Visiting  the farmers markets not only helps support local small farm businesses but it connect with  you with the farmers who grows your food.

Fresh taste and excellent quality is the next best thing to harvesting it yourself!
