Kitchener Market


About us

Today's Kitchener Market is an urban market that is both modern and inviting, with 50-foot transparent ceilings and walls of windows flooding the market space with natural light. All of the sights, sounds and smells patrons have come to know and love about the market come alive in this expansive space.

The market is not a building, it's a community. The market exists to connect people, create experiences and build relationships.

Near the Market

Situated in the east end of Downtown Kitchener - a thriving area with a rich blend of culturally diverse restaurants and shops - it offers visitors and residents alike, a unique, cosmopolitan experience in Kitchener's downtown.

The international flavour of the market spills over into the surrounding neighbourhoods where many food stores, restaurants and other culturally diverse businesses thrive on their close proximity to one of the country's most beautiful and contemporary marketplaces.

Physically, Kitchener Market serves as the cornerstone for the district and as an eastern entrance feature for the downtown, but more importantly, it's sure to be a hub of culture, shopping and tourism and the catalyst the core requires to promote positive change and growth.

Every year, Kitchener plays host to thousands of business travellers, individuals and families who come to sample our city's unique blend of history, hospitality and progress. We offer our citizens, visitors and corporate residents a rich urban life, balanced with a never-ending list of cultural and recreational activities. Our city is literally alive with festivals, events and activities all year.
