The Thunder Bay Country Market is a year-round farmers’ market held in the CLE Dove building Saturdays between 8am and 1pm year round until Christmas and Wednesdays from 3:30-6:30pm during Harvest Season.(May-Dec only)
We Make it, Bake it, Grow it.
Over 100 vendors attend every Market day, year-round, with additional farmers attending during the summer months; we’re proud to be the largest producer-based market in Northwestern Ontario. An average of 6,000 visitors shop for local meats, cheese, eggs, produce, baking, meals and crafts every week.
The Market is a sustainable engine of the Thunder Bay economy, with a real impact of close to $8 million on our community.
For our vendors, the Market represents an opportunity to earn a living doing something they’re great at and that they love. For many of our customers it’s a place to buy groceries, crafts and gifts from the talented, hard-working people who created them. For others it’s a meeting-place full of good people where they can get in touch with some of the simpler things in life.
At the Thunder Bay Country Market you’ll always know exactly what you’re buying. Our producers know that happy, confident customers will tell their friends about the Market; they dedicate themselves to answering your questions.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Nipigon Fall Fishing Festival is more than a fishing derby.
It is a chance for families, friends and visitors to get together and have an enjoyable time.
What makes the event more than a fishing derby? Follow the parade that begins in downtown Nipigon and finishes at the arena. While you’re at the arena, make sure you enjoy the booths, raffles, food, entertainment and prizes. If you feel like getting some fresh air you can go geocaching, go outside and watch a baseball game, take in the classic car display, participate in races or test your skills in the Firemen’s Challenge. If you need a chance to relax, come on over to the curling club and see some fish being entered. Later in the afternoon, you can grab something to eat at several locations and take in the dance if you like. On Sunday evening don't forget about the entertain-ment and fireworks at the waterfront.
The Nipigon Fall Fishing Festival has been a family oriented festival since 1965.
The different activities offered are intended to cover all age ranges so everyone can have fun.
Many local volunteer organizations benefit from the festival. These organizations provide essential services to our community and other larger organizations. Your participation helps them in their efforts. For the past number of years the festival has also provided a bursary to a local student who is continuing their post secondary education. Applications can be made by writing a short letter to the committee. Our local businesses and merchants also benefit from the festival.
