Downtown Windsor Farmers Market Opens This Saturday
The Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association (DWBIA) is pleased to collaborate with the Downtown Windsor Community Collaborative (DWCC) on the presentation of the 2018 Downtown Windsor Farmers Market. Opening May 26, the Farmers Market will run every Saturday from 8am-1pm on Maiden Lane and Pelissier until October 6, 2018.
“The Downtown Windsor Farmers Market gives residents and visitors the opportunity to interact with one another in a dynamic, inviting and established public space. The Market strengthens the fabric of our community and further livens our city centre.” – Larry Horwitz, DWBIA Chair
The Downtown Windsor Farmers Market is one of the best places to discover locally sourced and organic products. In addition to providing an extensive array of fresh and healthy produce, the Farmers Market includes a wide array of arts and crafts vendors, non-food vendors, community booths, a Kid’s Korner, and a variety of family friendly entertainment.
“It has truly been a team effort this year to get the Market up and running for the 2018 season,” said Sarah Cipkar, Community Development Coordinator at the Downtown Windsor Community Collaborative. “With an investment from our City Councillor, Rino Bortolin, for hydro boxes, a new subcommittee of resident leadership, support and advocacy from the DWBIA, and a lot of behind the scenes efforts by our seasoned Farmers Market General manager, Steve Green, many of us have been working tirelessly to make sure this will be a successful season.”
Established in 2010, the Downtown Windsor Community Collaborative’s mission is to renew the downtown core through nurturing community engagement. The Farmer’s Market is just one of the many community projects the DWCC is involved with. They also run Community Gardens, Sport 4 All, Little Things Matter, and the Lighthouse Network. All of these efforts work toward creating a safe neighbourhood that is engaged in its own growth and development.
