No Dogs Allowed – Unfortunately, at the request of Ottawa Public Heath, we have been asked to make our Christmas Markets pet-free. We are exploring options to accommodate our loyal, four-legged friends (and their owners), but in the meantime, our Christmas Markets will be pet-free. As always, service animals are exempt.


The Ottawa Farmers’ Market’s Christmas Markets start Saturday, December 2nd in the Aberdeen Pavilion at Lansdowne Park! Christmas markets span four weekends in December.

With over 120 vendors of locally grown and locally made food, and arts and crafts, including guest vendors from neighbouring markets, the Christmas Market serves as a great one-stop shop for host gifts, stocking stuffers, and ingredients for holiday dinners and entertaining.

Our Christmas Markets feature both Ottawa Farmers’ Market producer-members, as well as producers from other markets in the region, bringing you the best in locally grown and produced products across the Ottawa Valley and Western Quebec!

Who’s Coming? Click the date to see who will be there when you visit! Please note: sometimes we get last minute cancellations. We will do our best to keep these lists up to date!
