Lansdowne Market

Casino Lac Leamy Plaza

Sundays | May 2 to October 31, 2021 | 9:00AM - 3:00PM

As the only year-round, producer-only farmers' market in Ottawa, you're invited to love local at the Ottawa Farmers' Market's Lansdowne location. Every Sunday from November through April, you can find us in the Aberdeen Pavilion for safe, in-person shopping. The market is outside from May to October and Lansdowne is also home to our Christmas Market on Saturdays and Sundays in December!

 

The 2021 Outdoor Summer Market Season launches in Lansdowne Park’s Casino Lac Leamy Plaza on Sunday, May 2, with summer operating hours of 9:00 am – 3:00 pm every Sunday!

The Summer Market features 55+ artisans and farmers, who produce their edible goods and intricate crafts within a 100-km distance from the City of Ottawa. The market showcases the best of this region, with many agricultural, craft, baked goods, personal care products, and prepared food artisans in attendance. Each of our market vendors is committed to providing the freshest local products the season has to offer, including grocery staples such as fruits and vegetables, eggs, fresh bread, dairy, meat, marinades, and preserves!

 
Market staff have been working closely with public health officials to create protocols to help make our markets the safest source of fresh, local food possible while we strive to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Ottawa. We ask that customers please respect these measures as they are designed to give you the safest shopping experience possible.
 
These measures include:

  • Mandatory outdoor mask use for all customers, staff, and vendors.
  • No pets, only service animals.
  • Limiting customer numbers within the market at any given time.
  • Spacing out vendor stalls.
  • Offering hand sanitizer throughout the market.
  • Enforcing physical distancing measures within the market, and in areas where customers may wait.
  • Sanitizing surfaces and tables frequently.
  • No sampling of products.
  • No seating areas.
  • No musicians or buskers.
  •  
    We ask that you please stay home if you are sick, or have been in contact with someone who is sick.

Please note:

The plaza is under renovations this month with the replacement of trees and surrounding interlock, so the Lansdowne Market is going to look a little different for the month of May while the work wraps up. While the renos are underway in the plaza, the market entrance can now be found in the new West end section, located across the road from the Cinnaholic shop. Several of your favourite vendors can now be found in the West end that will run along Exhibition Way. For everyone’s safety, the market will run one-directionally with an entrance on the West and an exit in the East court (see the map below).
