The Acton Outdoor Market is the successful evolution of the former Acton farmer’s Market.
In 2023 the decision was made to end our limited association with the Farmer’s Market Ontario (FMO) group and establish the Acton Outdoor Market on our own. This change allowed the Downtown Acton BIA to make many positive changes including the expansion of our market site by moving to beautiful Prospect Park and Fairly Lake in Acton, a true hidden gem. Additionally the change allowed us to reach out to a wider selection of vendors, artisans and young entrepreneurs to participate in our market weekly and for the full season. Additionally, Downtown Acton businesses are present and represented at the market each week. Local restaurant menus, store flyers and giveaways can be found at the Downtown Acton BIA tent.
Many visitors to the newly organized weekly Acton Outdoor Market in 2023 enjoyed the shade of the trees, the breeze off of Fairy Lake, the absence of noisy Highway 7 traffic and the feel of grass underfoot while they shopped and browsed the many different and unique offering from the new and returning vendors.
Prospect Park also offers easy access parking, a kids playground, splashpad, boat launches, canoe rentals a walking path, an off-leash dog park and other recreational amenities seasonally.
The 2024 weekly Acton Outdoor Market runs each Thursday from June 6th to October 10th.
