TERRA Winter Market returns to TERRA Hamilton for the second year and TERRA Milton for the fifth year running. Nothing beats shopping local at an indoor market in the winter! The markets will open Saturday, January 14th and run until Saturday, March 25th, 2017. The markets will operate 10am-3pm and will reside in the greenhouses at the Hamilton and Milton locations of TERRA. The Hamilton store is located at 340 Highway 20 R.R #1 and the Milton store is located at 12800 Britannia Road.
Once again, TERRA will offer a fully enclosed and heated space to give local farmers and artisans a place to call their own this winter. The Winter Markets will have an Art in the Park theme and seating areas from which customers can enjoy the artsy colourful designs and assortment of plants. The greenhouse environment lends itself to a warm and sunny climate on cool winter days.
With 40+ vendors in Hamilton and 70+ vendors in Milton to choose from, these markets have something for everyone. There is a great selection of products such as produce, meats, cheeses, baked goods, coffee and wine. The Winter Markets also feature specialty items including hot sauce, salad dressing, popcorn, kombucha and meat pies.
TERRA decided to start the markets in support of local business and farms. This will lead to increased healthy lifestyles by providing communities with the necessary connection to local food producers over the winter months. The Winter Markets will also provide social opportunities for people to connect with neighbours, friends and acquaintances in comfortable and fun atmospheres.
