Collingwood Downtown Farmers’ Market Return

MEDIA RELEASE

For immediate release: June 23, 2020

The Collingwood Downtown Farmers’ Market returns this Saturday!
“Your New Outdoor Grocery Store”

The Collingwood Downtown Business Improvement Area (BIA) is pleased to announce the return of the
Collingwood Downtown Farmers’ Market, this Saturday, June 27. After an initial delay due to COVID-19,
we have worked with the Town of Collingwood and the local health unit to ensure that we have all
protocols in place to ensure a safe shopping experience for both market vendors and customers.

Come out this Saturday for the first market of the season and enjoy Collingwood’s ‘first outdoor grocery
store’ at the corner of Second and Pine Streets. The market will open from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. to
accommodate pre-ordered items and seniors, and will continue to 1 p.m.

Please note that the market will be very different this year and we ask that you please respect physical
distancing and bring a face mask with you. We will be managing inflow of traffic at the one way entrance
along Pine Street as well as arrows will guide you through the market to reach all your favourite
vendors.

Find out more details on what to expect this Saturday June 27th by checking out our Facebook pages
and details at www.collingwooddowntown.com.

Vendors have been busy planting, growing and baking to offer only the best for our 17th anniversary
season and are finally looking forward to welcoming everyone back. As the growing season becomes
more fruitful, so will the variety of the goods available at the market.
