Starting on September 12, you can find the Sam Smith Park Farmers’ Market at 65 Colonel Samuel Smith Park Drive (Kipling and Lakeshore) every Saturday, 8:00am to 1:00pm from September 12th to October 31st, rain or shine. The market is a test run to help determine the suitability of the location, day and time before taking off as a full season market in 2016.
Jolene Casella and Brian Liberty, two area residents that had similar visions to bring energy to the seasonal skating trail during the summer months, founded Sam Smith Park Farmers’ Market after meeting at a community event.
“The market will take place right on the skating trail in the park. It is such an incredible space”, said Jolene. “The City is currently renovating the interior of the adjacent Power House Recreation Centre. We hope the market will run year round some day to make use of the Power House through the winter.”
