Grimsby Farmer's Market

The Grimsby Farmer's Market is just one of the initiatives of GEDAC Committee. The market was established in response to a growing demand by the residents of Grimsby to enjoy the freshness of "home grown" products from the Niagara Region. Set up as a "Home Grown" Market, our vendors grow their own product and take the time to answer all the questions of the shoppers at the market. The market features a community tent that allows not-for-profit organizations the opportunity to meet with market shoppers. Regular cooking demonstrations have been arranged between the market vendors and local chefs who feature products purchased from the variety of locally grown products available.
