The Kingston Public Market is the oldest market in Ontario and has been providing food and a sense of community to residents of Kingston since 1801.
The market is located in Kingston’s historic downtown, right behind City Hall, and is open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday April through November. The market hours are from 9 am - 6 pm although some vendors arrive earlier and leave earlier.
The Kingston Public Market is full of vendors selling the highest quality local produce, prepared foods, garden plants and flowers, and handmade crafts. On a typical market day in the summer you can find a huge variety of goods such as beautiful heirloom tomatoes that were left to ripen on the vine and just picked that morning, delicious homemade cinnamon buns still warm from the oven or a one of kind handmade jewellery pieces made with stones from the Kingston area. Whatever you came for, you will leave with a smile on your face and the feeling of satisfaction that comes from buying food and goods from the people who produce them.
We’re lucky in Kingston to have a market that runs three days a week. This means that during the market season you can stop by on a Tuesday or Thursday to pick up something dinner, or come down to the market with your family on a Saturday and enjoy our many market events and activities.
