With over 190 years under its belt, the Guelph Farmers’ Market is probably the oldest farmers market I know. The market has been around since 1827 and remains an integral part of the community and a destination for many locals and visitors on Saturday mornings. The market located downtown Guelph and is open year round and starts bright and early at 7am and is open until noon.
The Guelph market is significantly larger as many other markets in the area, with over 120 vendors in the summer and around 60 in the winter. It can get quite packed during its peak hours between 10am and noon so I would recommend to get to this market early! This way you can take your time and leisurely explore the market. Being there early also means you get your hands on some of the best stuff before vendors sell out!
Let me take you through my visit of this historical market and show you which products you can expect to find during your visit.

I finally had the chance to visit the Elora Farmers’ Market the other weekend. I’ve been to Elora a couple of times before to explore this charming little town and, of course, to wander around the Elora Quarry. But I’ve never had the chance to visit the market on Saturdays.
You can feel the market’s unique charm and character, from its location right alongside the Grand River to its vendors and market patrons. Let me take you through my day at the Elora Farmers’ Market and tell you what local goodies you can expect to find!
