Haldimand County is pleased to announce that the highly anticipated Dunnville Waterfront Park and Farmers Market pavilion projects are now complete and open to the public.
Haldimand County and the Dunnville Farmers Market Association invite all residents to attend the grand opening celebration for the new Dunnville Farmers Market and Waterfront Park on Saturday, September 29, 2018.
The celebration will take place from 10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. at 218 Main Street East, Dunnville and include speeches, a ribbon cutting ceremony and dedication of a 140 year old heritage tree located in the park. Refreshments will be provided and vendors will be onsite with locally grown produce for purchase.
The Market will be open from 7:00 am to 12:00 pm on with activities for kids as well as entertainment.
The new market creates a space in Dunnville where shoppers and families can connect with local farmers and learn where their food comes from.
“After several years of community stakeholder input and involvement, the transformation of these riverfront lands has come to fruition with the $1.8 million dollar construction of the Dunnville Waterfront Park and Market Pavilion,” explained Mayor Ken Hewitt. “The market building is a great multi-use structure that will facilitate additional events and activities. This increased usage generates the potential for long-term economic benefits,” he added. “The use of the old arena lands to create the 1.5 acre Waterfront Park enhances the downtown with a beautiful riverside asset that includes walkways, park benches, lighting and landscaping that will be enjoyed by residents and visitors for years to come,” he concluded.
The Dunnville Farmers Market is open on Tuesday and Saturday mornings from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. until Saturday, December 22nd.
