Cambridge Farmers Market

Event Details:

 A farmers’ market is a place of:

  • Excitement and anticipation around food
  • A centre of commerce and socializing
  • A venue for combining old with new
  • A place for new ideas to be explored

We encourage you to take part in this tradition as a shopper or entrepreneur; everyone is welcome at the market.

Ask yourself a few simple questions….

  • Do you have a favourite food?
  • Is there a food you don’t like?
  • Do you have a comfort food that gives you a warm fuzzy or good memory?
  • Do you have a friend or colleague that has introduced you to a food you had never tried before?

My hope is that you answered, “Yes,” to all of the above questions, and that’s what we love about food: It is a common bond we all share, a single thread that when talked about, brings to mind all sorts of stories and experiences that we can share.

Farmers’ markets are a centre of commerce and socializing, a venue for combining old with new and a place for new ideas to be explored and celebrated.

The Cambridge Farmers’ Market (CFM) is our community food hub. It is where residents gather to talk about food and community happenings. It’s where awareness is built and the beginnings of change takes place.

The CFM dates back to the 1830s with the current market building holding its seat on Dickson Street since 1887. The presence of the market in conjunction with other civic structures, the Town Halls, is an English tradition that is as relevant today as it was when the market was built. 

The CFM building’s continued use as a market is unique in Ontario. While other markets either remain outdoors only or have had their original buildings converted for other uses, the CFM has continued to flourish in its original location in its original building for its original intended use and this should be celebrated.

As you explore the market, the sweet and spicy aromas of hot prepared foods and snacks will tempt you, along with an extensive selection of cheeses, chutneys, pies, confections, specialty oils, preserves, and seasonal fruits and vegetables.

A wide range of local growers and food producers can supply you with all your needs from savoury appetizers to mouth-watering desserts.

Our market wouldn’t exist without those dedicated vendors, some of whom have been a part of our team for over 50 years. They arrive in the snow and in the rain, or in the heat of summer, often setting up as early as 3:30 in the morning and many don’t pack up until more than 12 hours later.

We have 26 year-round vendors and 30 seasonal vendors, averaging 56 vendors at the peak of the market season, who supply approximately 35,000 shopper visits each year.

You can learn more about our vendors by visiting the vendor directory on our website, cambridgefarmersmarket.ca. 

The Cambridge Farmers' Market is open Saturdays from 7 am to 1 pm, year-round. It is located at the corner of Ainslie Street and Dickson Street, in the heart of downtown Cambridge, and parking is available nearby.
