"Get your Boots to the Roots". The Orillia Farmers' Market is one of the longer-running farmers' markets in the province, with its roots in the 1840's at the waterfront. Between 1872 and 2009, this Market operated on a parcel of land turned over for the use of local farmers, at what turned out through time to be the main downtown intersection and the location of the community's Opera House and Public Library.

As the City Administration prepared to demolish the present library building and replace it with a new one, it offered the market a temporary home at the City Centre, two blocks away. The Market moved there in November 2009, and remained there until the end of  2013. The City Council established an 'ad hoc' committee to examine options on location of the Market and decided that the Orillia Farmers' Market should return to Market Square at the Library.

Downtown by the Opera House

- corner of West and Mississaga Streets  - in the heart of Downtown Orillia               -every Saturday year round from 7:30 a.m to 12:30 p.m.  



The Farmers' Market continues to proudly boast of its range of locally produced foods, handmade crafts from around the county and regularly scheduled special events for the family. Our growers look forward to Saturdays on the Market, where they offer fresh-picked produce in season, and naturally raised meats, with a variety of baked goods and ready-to-eat treats in a sociable atmosphere. Bring your family, meet your friends, get to know the vendors, enjoy the local musicians in the Market Cafe. Treat yourself to one of the tasty lunch menu items
