The Stiver Mill Farmers' Market
June 25, 2017 to October 8, 2017
from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
at 9 Station Lane (map)
On Sunday, June 27th, the Unionville Stiver Mill Farmers’ Market on Station Lane in Unionville, will open for the 2017 season. This unique farmers’ market is held in a park-like setting beside the Stiver Mill every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until October 8, 2017.
The Stiver Mill Farmers’ Market was originally started to bring awareness to the plight of the Stiver Mill. The City of Markham and the Federal Government came together after five years to support the restoration of the Stiver Mill. The newly renovated Stiver Mill, now called the Stiver Mill Cultural Centre, officially opened in June 2014. As Mayor Frank Scarpitti says “it is a showpiece”.
Along with fresh fruit, vegetables, baked goods, honey, meat and crafts, there's live entertainment weekly.
Meet your friends and enjoy breakfast or lunch at the Market Grill.
The newly renovated Stiver Mill includes a beautiful boardwalk running from Main Street Unionville, beside the Train Station and around the Stiver Mill. Enjoy a stroll on the boardwalk to the Farmers’ Market. Hope to see you there opening day!

Canada 150 Kids Workshop Series @ Paintlounge
To celebrate Canada’s
150th birthday, we’re running a limited-time kids workshop series
featuring four Canadian landscapes in the style of renowned Canadian
artist, Ted Harrison!
Explore our country from the West Coast
Rockies, to the Yukon Inukshuk, to Ontario’s Niagara Falls, all the way to the East Coast Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick.
Harrison's style can be summarized as bold and vibrant – depicting pink
purple mountains and bright orange hills. Although his style is almost
childlike, his art retains innocent charm that appeals to everyone.
This workshop series is suitable for children ages 7-14 (a parent or guardian must stay with the child).
$25 + HST per workshop, includes a 12×12″ canvas, instruction, all supplies, and materials.
