History of the Market

The Hamilton Farmers' Market was originally founded in 1837, at the corner of York & James Streets.

The Market has been in its current location 55 York Boulevard next to the Hamilton Public Library since August 1980. The modern architectural design provides a mezzanine level and lower level, consisting of 176 stands and approximately 80 stallholders. All indoors!

There are rows of farm fresh produce from sun-ripened tomatoes, fresh picked apples, nuts, dried fruit, bright coloured flowers, lettuce crisp and fresh, the choicest cuts of meats, fish - the finest from the sea, fresh baked goods, tangy cheeses, tropical fruits and even coffee and donuts.

Specialty products are also imported from many other countries around the world. This excellent product mix is offered each market day and attracts regular customers from the local community and tourists from all over the world.

r...when you go if you park in the parking garage across the street, you can park for 1 hour free. You take in the ticket you get when you go into the parking lot and they stamp it and you show it on the way out.
Hope you enjoy it. :)
