The Brampton Farmers’ market — a fixture in the city’s food scene — has been running for over 35 years. It’s a great place to spend a Saturday morning, nibbling on local treats and chatting up vendors, as you pick your way through stalls of peak-season produce, fresh-baked goods, artisanal foods and local crafts.

There are two sections to this years’ market. Section one is located along Ken Whillans Square and Wellington Street South, and section 2 is in Gage Park. While masks are mandatory and eating and drinking are not allowed on the premises, you can still experience some of the best bites the market has to offer.


1. Das Brezel Haus

Begin your market tour with a pretzel from Das Brezel Haus. They are hand-twisted and made fresh daily. We recommend the sausage pretzel or Philly soft style topped with cinnamon sugar and sea salt.
