Guelph Farmers’ Market on Canada Day

The downtown-based Guelph Farmers’ Market is marking Canada’s 150th anniversary with festivities. 

The family-friendly farmers’ market is holding a morning of free “fun and civic celebration”, according to their Facebook page.

The farmers’ market was the only building designated on the city plan when land was first cleared for Guelph in 1827.

Guelph’s founder, John Galt, wanted an “instant city” with the market at its center when the plan was initially drawn up. Over time, the market was discontinued for several years and then was rebuilt in 1856.

Since then, the farmers’ market has existed in downtown Guelph in multiple locations.

The event on July 1 is free admission and last from 7 am until 12 pm.

The event description also says attendees should “bring a picnic blanket and enjoy snacks from the mini outdoor prepared-food market and other vendors, pick up the finishing touches for your Canada Day barbeque, and more!”
