Although we will miss many of Main Street Unionville’s traditional summer events this year due to the pandemic, we will be able to celebrate local food and artisans at the new, re-imagined Main Street Unionville Market.
The Market will feature local farmers, bakers, artists and other ‘makers’.
Considered an ‘essential service’ by the government, the Market will be outdoors, in and around the Train Station and Stiver Mill, allowing for plenty of social distancing and the ability to follow all Covid-19 protocols.
“We are really looking forward to giving residents and visitors a new location to purchase their fresh foods, baked goods and unique crafted pieces,” says Sara Sterling, executive director of the Unionville BIA. “The previous Farmers’ Market did a wonderful job and now that they have closed we are hoping to breathe new life into an even busier, unique marketplace that everyone can feel safe visiting.”
As many of the businesses on Main Street have suffered through the past 14 months of the pandemic, Sterling and UBIA chair Niina Felushko are hoping visitors to the Market will shop and eat local along the street.
“We will be encouraging all of our Market visitors to continue their Sunday checking out even more great items at our shops along the street, and hopefully stopping at one of our restaurants for a meal or a quick ice-cream or coffee at one of our many cafes,” said Felushko.
The first Market is scheduled for Sunday June 6, with the Market being open every Sunday until September 19. Market hours are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.Vendors are still welcome to apply for a space by emailing [email protected]. More information about the Market can be found at www.unionvilleinfo.com .
