As we come into the second half of summer, Main Street Unionville continues to teem with activity.
The sidewalks are busier than ever with pedestrians, now that many COVID restrictions have been lifted and more and more people are vaccinated.
The opening of four new businesses has certainly added to the excitement on the street. For your sweet tooth, there is the new café Sweetie Pie, offering butter tarts, cookies, and pies. Those who love sushi are in luck with the arrival of Tsuyoi Sushi, right next door to Sweetie Pie at 190 Main Street.
Two more additions to the street include Lemonwood Luxury, offering fine women’s fashion, and JW Cosmetics which features many popular name-brand cosmetic items.
The Unionville Business Improvement Area (UBIA) is thrilled with the new businesses and has noticed a real upswing on the street.
“We welcome all the new businesses and the increased number of visitors to Unionville,” says Sara Sterling, Executive Director of the UBIA. “With such a high vaccination rate in York Region, more and more people are feeling comfortable enough to come back to the street to support local businesses.”
The new Main Street Unionville Market has also been busy with visitors from far and wide. More than 700 customers come through the market to pick up fresh produce, interesting artisanal items and baked goods. The market runs Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Stiver Mill.
If you’re looking for a casual lunch on the patio, a romantic dinner for two, or to pick up that special gift for someone, then head to Main Street and support local businesses. It means so much to the small businesses and they truly appreciate it.
Here’s to a wonderful August on Main Street!
