  • When we need fresh seasonal vegetables this is the place to go. Hugh variety of products and friendly venders. The price is better then the big chain stores most of the time. The meat and fish venders...  more »

  • Great place to get your produce and some groceries! Prices are amazing compared to super markets and other markets like St. Jacobs farmers market! This place offers mostly food options and a LOT of food options, the only thing I would like to see more of is craft vendors and fun quirky vendors. Nearly 95% or more is food vendors and very few other options. But still a fantastic place to get your weeks food needs! :) it's usually busy so be prepared to rub shoulders ;)
  • Great place to do your groceries and great shopping experience if you're looking for the bazaar-like vibe. They have all types of produce/meats/cheese/etc. Price point varies depending on the vendor. The market is, obviously, at its prime in the summer. But even in the winter, it is totally worth your visit (it is indoors). I do my weekly grocery shopping from there.
  • Excellent selection of local and imported produce along with meats and baked goods. The golden hearth on the other side of the road has the best pastries and sourdough bread we've had other than Europe, but German products are there at the Kitchener market. Fritters just like St Jacobs upstairs!
  • Great Food- both to take home as well as to enjoy while at the market. Ensure that you check out Charles Quality Meats. Make sure you speak to the produce sellers so you know who is the grower, who is selling local produce vs someone who is selling produce they bought at the Food Terminal distribution centre.
  • Affordable prices can be found. There are several local vendors as well. The food court is a bit limited but you can find awesome Jamaican patties, pizza, crepes, Spanish food, bakery goods, coffee/hot drinks and some European food. I give this place 4 stars just because the underground parking can be hectic.

Where to stay in Kitchener

For a relatively large city, Kitchener doesn't offer a particularly broad range of accommodations. In the city center, King Street offers a handful of mid-range hotels, but little beyond that. Your best bet is to look southeast to Centreville Chicopee, where you can find a cluster of chain hotels, or northwest to the adjoining city of Waterloo, which offers some nicer hotels by its main park.
