The Matiowski Farmers’ Market has steadily grown in size and popularity since its inception in 2005; it is now one of the largest markets in Northwestern Ontario. Every Wednesday from mid June to early October, the Whitecap Pavilion plays host to just over 100 Market Vendors selling authentic handmade and homegrown products.
At the Market, you will find a variety of farm fresh meats, locally grown fresh produce, and delicious baked goods, dips and spreads. As well, local artwork, jewellery, and textiles all created by area artisans. In fact, offerings at Matiowski Farmers’ Market change week to week and are always a pleasant surprise. Support and grow our local economy by shopping here.
The City of Kenora offers various parking options in the downtown core. Please ensure to follow parking signage at all times and especially during busy Market Days.
FREE Shuttle Service
FREE shuttle service to the Matiowski Farmers’ Market takes market shoppers to the Whitecap Pavilion from the Kenora Recreation Centre. The shuttle service starts the first week of July between 8: 30 am until 3:00 pm, every 15 minutes on Market days. Those wanting to take advantage of the shuttle may park in Lot 3 or Lot 4 at the Kenora Recreation Centre at no charge, and then gather at the loading zone by the tennis courts. The service was first provided in 2017 for a three week trial period. It was very well utilized during the trial period and will continue to be offered on Wednesdays in July and August.
In addition to the summer-long Farmers’ Market, there are Specialty Markets held throughout the year at various venues in the city. Follow Tourism Kenora on Facebook to find out where the next specialty market will be!
