The Orangeville Farmers’ Market will continue to operate during the winter in a new venue where physical distancing can be accommodated -- B rink of the Tony Rose Memorial Sports Centre. The winter market will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every other Saturday, beginning Saturday, November 7.

The arena offers plenty of space for vendors and a 50-shopper limit. Most vendors will attend every week, but some will alternate or change from week to week.  A listing of the current week’s vendors will be posted on the website. 

The direct entrance into B rink is located at the south end of the parking lot; there will be no access to the market from the building’s main entrance. 

The winter market dates are as follows:  November 7 & 21, December 5 & 19, January 9 & 23, February 6 & 20, March 6 & 20, and April 3 & 17.

Shoppers are asked to limit social interactions inside the market and to limit the number of shoppers per family to one person. The market is under strict Town of Orangeville and Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health Board guidelines designed to keep everyone safe.
