The TERRA Winter Market returns to TERRA Hamilton for the third year and TERRA Milton for the sixth year running. The markets will open on Saturday, January 13th and run until Saturday, March 17th, 2018. Nothing beats shopping local at an indoor market in the winter! 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.
Local farmers and artisans call TERRA their own over 10 Saturdays in its fully enclosed, warm and colourful space, filled with artsy designs and an assortment of plants. Customers of the market can escape the cold to do their shopping and catch some vitamin D on blistery winter days. The market has a large café seating area, a fun kid’s zone and a huge selection of local vendors to check off any grocery list or craving.
With 60+ vendors in Hamilton and 80+ 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.
