About Kerr Village Farmer’s Market

Now entering its fourth season at Heritage Square, in the heart of Oakville, this year’s expanded marketplace has something for
everyone – whether looking for locally grown produce, seeking seasonal ingredients for a favourite family recipe, or simply in search of a trendy community gathering place.

When shopping at the KVFM, you support local family owned farms, as well as independent businesses. This means you get your food directly from the source. Fresher food translates into better taste. And ultimately, better health. As well, precious resources are not wasted on long distance transportation.

You enjoy the most delicious, nutritious and reasonably priced seasonal produce, while meeting face to face with the very people who raise, grow and make your food.

In addition to providing the highest quality products, all KVFM farmers and vendors are committed to the long term well being of our fragile environment. And while some are actually “certified organic,” all practice sustainable farming methods – preserving the richness of their lands for farming generations to come.

The Kerr Village Farmers Market is open every Saturday, June 19th through October 9th between 9 am and 1 pm. This family friendly venue also features the Market Cafe.

The fabulous students who prepared the food for the vodka food pairing event taking place later on in the afternoon! — with Chantel Parkes, David Gosse, Michael Bartello and Winston Tham.

Celebrate in Oakville’s Kerr Village every Saturday all summer long!
