  • The market is a great addition to the downtown as it allows local residents to buy fresh produce at reasonable prices. Parking is a bit of a challenge. Try parking at the Squash Club on Duke St. 
  • Being a couple decade long supporter of the Waterloo Market, I'd never bothered to visit the Kitchener Market. But one Saturday I decided too, as it's closer to home. After the craziness of getting to...  more »
  • I go to the Kitchener Market once a month or so, to get a Breadbaron Sandwich, to see friends, great coffee just inside the upper level front doors. Fun atmosphere. I love it there.

  • Always a nice place to be mid morning on a Saturday when the market crowd is thinning and the Kitchener summer bands play outside (weather permitting). Lots of activity happening there. A great meeting place. Market has many vendors inside and out (seasonal). Good variety. Just as good as the St. Jacob's market, but much quieter with less people.
  • My favourite market. This market is all about food, especially in the summer. Start off with Breakfast and your choices are endless. My favourite are the potato pancakes with plantains from Caribbean Kitchen. My daughter loves the crepes from Everyday Gourmet and my husband always chooses something different. Then we wander around and look at everything, taste some things and pick up what we need and what we want. Everyone is helpful and polite. If you are not walking parking is not easy as the market is very popular, just be prepared to be patient or park further away and walk.
  • We chose Kitchener Market for our wedding reception and it did not disappoint! Our reception was held in the programming room upstairs, and it had plenty of space for 10 round tables (8 people at each), a bar, a dessert table, a card table, and a sweetheart table. Michele was so helpful: she ordered linens, found us a bartender, made sure we had access to audio equipment and a podium, already had contacts with the caterers, and answered all of my (many) emails inline so that I felt comfortable as the day quickly approached. There was plenty of room to dance, and everyone had so much fun - we can't imagine it being that easy anywhere else. There were staff there to help us set up, and they took care of all the tables and chairs, so the clean up for our wedding party wasn't too cumbersome. It was really such a wonderful experience, and we highly recommend it for anyone looking for a fun, easy, not too formal reception venue. Thank you to the team at Kitchener Market for such a gift!
  • The vendors are great - make sure you try South Central Sausage, and Anna Tozallini chocolates, as well as all of your basic grocery needs. Can be a bit crowded sometimes, but grab some friends and some coffees after your shopping, and enjoy the atmosphere!
  • This market has been here in various forms throughout my childhood until now. My grandfather used to take me here when I was little and it still offers the best prices for fresh everything. My favourite vendor is the hummus and pita stand, they make the best hummus you have ever tasted.
