If you are looking for a fabulous local only farmers market with the best atmosphere in town, Aberfoyle Farmers Market is the place for you. Our amazing location is just slightly off of Brock Road South (Highway 6 south) in the Optimist Recreation Centre on the outside rink surface. This provides us with the perfect location. We have the advantage of fresh air, warm breezes and no rain. The covered rink gives us a great shelter from the sun or the rain. We have tons of free parking and our market is very spacious allowing even the biggest of strollers tons of space without interfering with other shoppers.
Each week we have a kids corner sponsored by Sarmazian Brothers set up with some toys and our newest acquisition a lovely rocking horse that was lovingly donated to our market. All Puslinch soccer players get a free soccer snack provided by one of our vendors and we have free water available for all.
One of the best part about the ambiance of our market are our buskers. Each week we have fantastic musicians and singers entertaining us. This week we have the ever popular “Bands fur Animals” returning to the market for the first time this year. This organization raises money for the Lincoln County Human Society through awesome music. You won’t want to miss them. https://www.facebook.com/BandsFurAnimals/
The weather forecast this weekend looks a bit bleak. Our awesome little market is the perfect place to find shelter for the rain, purchase the best in local products, grab a coffee and a bite to eat and sit down at one of our many picnic tables to take in the awesome music. Its the perfect way to start your Saturday.
