Market Murals - My World Tuesday

When its minus 12 degrees and the ground is covered with snow, shopping and eating, at the indoor farmer's market is the only way to go! Our Covent Garden Market was formally established in 1845, but was rebuilt about 10 years ago.

The Market has farm-fresh quality produce, organic foods, award-winning meats, ethnic foods, and the largest assortment of cheese in Southwestern Ontario to tempting sweets, coffees and teas, and beautiful flowers. 


Twice a week (Thursdays and Saturdays) during the summer, an outdoor farmers' market features fresh produce, meats, and baked goods. Arts and culture are the focus of the Market's mezzanine where a number of cultural organizations and artists are located –there’s even an art school and a theatre!

I like the murals that decorate the entrance ways.

This looks like a fun market! We are awaiting the opening of our new Hamilton Farmers market (which has been delayed)

It is such an excellent idea to have an indoor Farmer’s Market where places get very chilly. The goods look delicious and creatively displayed. I love the murals … what fantastical vegetables to greet you at the elevator door!

Those are awesome murals, I love things like that. It's -19 F (-28 C) outside my house right now - a good day not to go anywhere!
