Welcome to the Orillia Farmers' Market
"Get your Boots to the Roots". The Orillia Farmers' Market is one of the longer-running farmers' markets in the province, with its roots going back to 1842 at the waterfront. In 1872, 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.
