The Niagara Falls City Market, a destination for fresh, local produce, and a hub for community gathering, is thrilled to announce the upcoming season, set to be its most vibrant and eventful yet. With an array of new vendors, engaging special events, extended operating hours, heightened safety protocols, and an abundance of locally sourced produce, the market aims to provide an experience for visitors and residents alike. Whether you're in search of local seasonal produce, handmade gifts, or just want to spend an afternoon exploring, the Niagara Falls City Market has something for everyone.
Established in 1913, the Niagara Falls City Market holds a rich history in the community. For over a century, it has served as a bustling marketplace where farmers, artisans and community members come together to celebrate the region's agricultural heritage. This year, the market proudly announces the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area as its presenting sponsor, further emphasizing the market's commitment to preserving the city's cultural legacy and supporting local initiatives.
Niagara Falls National Heritage Area Executive Director Sara Capen said, "There is simply nothing that speaks to summer more than the bounty of produce that can be discovered right here at our very own Niagara Falls City Market. It is an experience that creates convenient fresh food access, friendly conversations with local growers, and preserves an iconic tradition that stretches a century in the history of Niagara Falls."
As the weather warms, the Niagara Falls City Market is preparing to welcome a diverse range of vendors offering an enticing selection of products. From handcrafted spirits to culinary delights, the market will showcase an exciting lineup of new vendors who will join our longtime regional produce vendors.
To enrich the market experience, the upcoming season will be marked by a series of special events designed to engage and entertain attendees of all ages.
