Phased Opening 2020

Summer 2020 hours: 7am-1pm

While we navigate these changes, the safety of our patrons and vendors remain at the forefront as we open through a phased approach. We will endeavour to keep this site updated as often as possible.

The majority of vendors have returned to the market, but keep in mind that some may not be back yet. Whether you’re grocery shopping for the week, picking up your ready-to-eat foods for a picnic or looking for locally-made gifts, the market continues to offer the high-quality local products you know and love. You will find a great selection of grocers, treats, ready-to-eat food and artisans. Many vendors update their own Facebook pages with their weekend plans, so you can check out their postings to see what they will be bringing to Market this weekend.

To ensure everyone’s safety, please keep these things in mind:

  • Entrance to the Market buildings will be through 665 George St. only
  • Courtyard can be accessed from three staffed entry points outside off Regent, George and Brunswick Sts. Please continue to practice social distancing measures outside.
  • There is one exit, once you’ve left the market buildings, if you wish to re-enter the buildings, you will only be able to re- enter through 665 George St.
  • Do not visit if exhibiting any symptoms of illness
  • Access to the market buildings is limited to 80 shoppers at a time 
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before entering
  • Wearing a community face mask is strongly advised 
  • Follow one-way directional arrows 
  • Shop don’t stop! Plan to move quickly from vendor to vendor 
  • Please exit when you are finished shopping 

While the market may feel a bit different than before, our vendors will continue to offer the products you know and love and we trust that you will adapt to the new plan and continue to support local vendors.

Vendor Lineups:

Once you are inside the Market building, you will notice a few of our very popular vendors have artfully constructed lineups to ensure you are able to access the products you want and need, while also respecting social distancing. To lessen any confusion on-site, we have provided visuals below of how the lineups are structured.

These modifications apply to:
Whitney Coffee Company 
Yerxa’s Meat Inc
The Cheese Market
Adolf’s Butcher Shop

To join the Cheese Market and Yerxa’s Meat lineup, the line will flow outside, adjacent to the building. You will briefly exit the building through the door between vendor stalls 7 and 8 to join the lineup. To maintain public safety, please ensure you keep 2m distance and wait until you’re called to the counter; both counters have the capability to serve 3 customers at a time as indicated by the black dots.
For Whitney’s Coffee, the lineup will also run outside adjacent to the building. You will briefly exit the building through the door between vendor stalls 26 and 27 to join the lineup. To maintain public safety, please ensure you keep 2m distance from fellow patrons. Once you’ve purchased your coffee or beans, you will re-enter the building through the door located between vendor stalls 18 and 19 if you wish.

To join Adolf’s Butcher Shop lineup, there will be two sections, Line A and Line B separated by a counter, join either lineup and wait until you are called to the counter. This vendor has the capability to serve 2 people at a time, as indicated by the black dots. Once again, we ask that you please ensure 2m distance between yourself and fellow patrons.

For vendors who are doing delivery or pickup please check this list.
