Thunder Bay Country Market, 2014 Season

Thunder Bay Country Market, 2014 Season

The Thunder Bay Country Market is a year-round farmers’ market held Wednesdays from 4-7pm from May long weekend through September, and Saturdays between 8am and 1pm all year-round.

The Market is now open for their mid-week Market, Wednesdays from 4-7pm!  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.
