Downtown Winnipeg BIZThe popular Downtown Winnipeg Farmers’ Market is returning to the core next month.

After a successful preview market in March following last season’s popular run, the market will set up every Thursday from June 5 to October 9.

“Farmers’ markets not only help support the local economy, they reduce transportation costs and food waste,” said Downtown BIZ executive director Stefano Grande. “They help create a unique destination for downtown residents, office workers, students, and tourists – adding vibrancy to our streets and sidewalks and attracting business for downtown stores and restaurants nearby.”

CentreVenture is sponsoring the event as a “worthwhile investment to serve a growing downtown,” a news released stated.

The market will be housed at Manitoba Hydro Place Plaza from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekly.
