A few facts about the Burlington Mall
Farmers' Market

The Burlington Nelson Lions Club opened the Farmers' Market in the Central Arena parking lot in 1960. Since then we have changed locations several times until we arrived at our present location. 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.
