- Queen Street will be jammed off between Grafton and Dorchester roads each Sunday.
- During the 2021 season, Scott Mullen was vending honey at the outdoor market in downtown Charlottetown along with his mother.
The Downtown Farmers’ Market is back on Charlottetown’s Queen Street for its 13th summer, beginning this Sunday.
This year’s edition of the outdoor road market will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. AT each Sunday till late September.
Vehicular traffic will be stopped at that time as approximately 80 sellers set up booths spanning three blocks of Queen Street, between Grafton and Dorchester.
“We hope to see a record number of tourists and visitors throughout the whole summer,” stated Dawn Alan, the executive director of Downtown Charlottetown Inc., which manages the market. “So I suspect our numbers will be great.”
Regional produce sellers, food stalls, and artisan craft kiosks will be among the booths.
Musical acts are also booked to deliver entertainment at each market from midday to 2 p.m.
The first one, on July 3, is Just Cuz PEI Band.\
The market drives rain or shine, although the Downtown Charlottetown Inc. site states: “Sellers who have products that are keen to rain may choose not to attend on rainy days.”
