Bring your kids to the Marketplace to stir up a storm with fun themes and activities focused around food, cooking and nutrition. Classes are taught by one of our professional chefs who give your kids, and you, lots of opportunities to participate.

These free cooking classes run from 10a.m. - noon on Saturdays.

Upcoming cooking classes for kids at the
Kitchener Market:

St. Patty's Day Party - Mar. 17, 10-12 p.m. 

It's the luck of the Irish! We are having a blast on March 17th with a live Irish dance show, crafts for kids and a nutritiously delicious cooking activity.

Want to bring local food or craft markets to your neighbourhood? Now you can! The Kitchener Market and Love My Hood have teamed up to support you in taking the lead. We’ve made it easy with a step-by-step guide and bookable pop-up market kit.

Easter at the Market - Mar. 31, 10-12 p.m.

Hop on down to the Kitchener Market and spend the morning with the Easter Bunny. Make a special Easter craft, decorate a egg, and create an Easter treat at the Kids in the Kitchen. Don't forget to bring your phone or camera along to take a photo with the bunny! 

A big thank you to our egg sponsor OK Eggs for donating the eggs used for the crafts, you can visit them downstairs on Saturdays for farm-fresh Ontario eggs.

A non-perishable item or a 2 dollar donation to the Waterloo Region Food Bank is required by each person attending.
