The market is a great excuse to spend your Wednesday in Kentville! Our market boasts 20 to 30 vendors during the outdoor season, and 12-15 vendors during the indoor seasons. Enjoy live music, a community not-for-profit table, an information booth, and a market store. Many visitors stop in for a healthy lunch and pick up their groceries at the same time.
A commitment to 100% Nova Scotian product is our top priority. Our emphasis is on local food producers and artisans who focus on locally-sourced ingredients and materials. On any given day, you are likely to find a wide and inspiring selection of products such as:
- fresh vegetables, herbs, fruits, and other produce

From May to October the market runs from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Kentville Centre Square (October to May location is under review).
The market began in 2007 as a joint project of the Town of Kentville and the Wolfville Farmers’ Market. After four steady and successful years of growth, the market became its own entity in 2011. It is now a joint project of the Town of Kentville and the Kentville Farmers’ Market and Community Garden Society.
