Special to The Tribune
The Oliver Street Market will be experiencing a few changes.
We will be moving from Herb Gardner Park, right below city hall, to the Old Courthouse Square, otherwise known as Spirit Square, located on the corner of Oliver Street and First Avenue.
In trying to find a time when the market will be accessible to as many people as possible we are also changing the date/time.
After speaking with many members of the community as well as local businesses and groups, our board and members have voted to change from Saturday mornings to Friday evenings from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The market will run from May, 31 until Oct. 18 this year.
We have loved our location these past two years for its green space and visibility, however, access for vendors and customers has been a constant challenge so after much deliberation we have decided to move.
Our new location is in the heart of downtown, and we envision a market that will be a vibrant community event that will help to liven up the centre of our city.
Oliver Street Market has become an integral part of its community and brings together farmers, artisans, craftspeople and consumers in an innovative way, facilitating sales for farmers/vendors through a creative market.
The Oliver Street Market celebrates, educates and promotes fresh, locally grown food and supports the development of a strong, local economy.
The Oliver Street Market is a venue that supports and advocates for small farms, involved in local, sustainable agriculture and links consumers of all economic levels in their community with fresh, local food.
