Locally Grown & Homemade
Generations have grown up at the Belleville Farmers Market – a market that has been in Downtown Belleville for over two centuries. Constructed in 1872-73, five years before Belleville became a city, the original City Hall building housed an indoor market on the first floor and a public hall and municipal office on the second floor. During this time residents could go inside to purchase fruits, vegetables and pies on display or even ready-to-eat chickens.
The hustle and bustle of a farmers’ market morning triggers a sense of community. In the spring, the market comes alive with rich produce, maple syrup, plants and baking, and remains a ‘hive of activity’ right through the Christmas season. The market is a gathering place, and people are making the choice to support locally grown and made.
Located in Market Square behind City Hall, the market is open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays all year-round from 9 am to 5 pm (peak time 9 am to 2 pm).
