Farmers' Market

The Burlington Nelson Lions Club opened the Farmers' Market in the Central Arena parking lot in 1959. We moved to the new Burlington Mall parking lot in 1968. In 2007 the Burlington Nelson Lions and the Burlington Central Lions merged as the Burlington Lions Club. We have become one of the most successful Farmers' Markets in Southern Ontario.

A recent study conducted on our market showed that the Market brings in about $5,000,000 in sales into your community. This is above the moneys spent at the market itself.We have to thank the Burlington Mall Management for their co-operation and generosity in allowing us this prestigious location for our Farmers' Market.
