The market is on the corner of Dilworth Drive and Springfield Road every Wednesday and Saturday from the start of April to the end of October, rain or shine! From November to March, we are at the Parkinson Rec Centre select Saturdays. Please see our ‘Locations’ tab for more information.

No, we do not allow dogs or other animals at our outdoor market, with the exception of service animals. At our winter market, animals are subject to city bylaws as we hold the market at Parkinson Rec Centre, which is city property.
The best place to park is at the Orchard Park Shopping Centre across the street from the market. Please use the crosswalks at Springfield Road or Baron Road to cross the street. As well, the SPCA parking lot located off Springfield Road beside the market is often open for parking by donation. The market offers limited handicap parking (10 stalls) in the market lot, accessed with a right hand turn off of Dilworth Drive.
