COVID-19 Advisory: We look forward to safely welcoming you. Please stay up to date on current Public Health alerts here. While the COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, our website may not reflect current offerings. Please contact each business directly before making plans. 

If you can make it, bake it, or grow it, you’ll probably find it at a New Brunswick farmer’s market. Here are a few to check out this winter.

Think farmers markets are for summer? Think again. Our black bears may go into hibernation for the winter, but New Brunswick growers, bakers, farmers, and artisans won’t let a little weather get in the way of our beloved farmer’s market tradition. They’re such a part of our culture that it just wouldn’t feel right to pack things up once the snow flies. 

Here are some markets to check out this winter. And remember, the early bird gets the worm (or in this case the seafood, veggies, pastries, cheese, homemade gifts... you get the idea.)
