Downtown Windsor Farmers’ Market extends for winter offering

The Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association is thrilled to announce that the Downtown Windsor Farmers’ Market will continue to operate until mid-December.

After a successful season where the DWFM and its vendors rose to every challenge presented by COVID-19, the City of Windsor has announced it will permit the Market to continue operating for six more weeks on the ground floor of the Pelissier Street Garage.

“The Downtown Windsor Farmers’ Market activates the neighbourhood, and solves the food desert problem in the downtown core once a week throughout the spring, summer and fall,” says DWBIA Chair Brian Yeomans. “To be able to extend the Market for another six weeks keeps the downtown vibrant and full of life during the colder months, supports many of the vendors who have had an especially challenging time operating through a pandemic, and drives traffic and visitation to our member businesses too.”

The new venue – just steps from the summer market space – allows for up to 40 vendors. As many of the DWFM produce vendors cultivate goods throughout the winter season and our artisan vendors will have fewer opportunities for holiday markets this year, we expect the DWFM to operate at or near vendor capacity each week.

“We’ve wanted to expand into the winter season for years now,” says Steve Green, Market Manager. “The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that our vendors are ready for anything – and that our Market shoppers and visitors are too!”
