⏰ Online Store Open: Sunday to Wednesday

We hope you enjoy our online platform to place orders with multiple vendors all in one place. It’s our hope that this preorder system, set-up through Kitchener, Ontario’s Local Line, will provide guaranteed income for vendors on market days, guarantee product availability and expedite shopping times while at the Market. Please note:

  • If there’s a line-up to enter the market, priority will be given to preorder customers. Otherwise, all market customers are welcome from 9am to 1pm.
  • Pick up your orders directly from each vendor. For vendors not at the market, please visit the pick-up tent before you leave.

Launch of the Urban Grower Project

Last Saturday was a perfect September Market day. A little bit cool, but with a beautiful blue sky. Saturday also happened to be the day that Withrow Market launched our Urban Growers Pilot Project, something we’ve been working on getting up and running these past few weeks.
