Full-Time Downtown Barrie Market Preview

City Hall Presentation Shows Off What To Expect from Downtown Market

Barrie City Council got a glimpse of what a year round downtown market would look like. A presentation to councillors at City Hall last night showed off the proposed site at the old Barrie Bus Terminal downtown, downtown-marketwhich would boast indoor vendors selling everything from local produce to baked goods, along with a smattering of eateries. This would involve the Barrie Farmer’s Market crowd that currently calls City Hall grounds home during the warmer months; farmers’ market participants could be housed in a different structure on the bus depot grounds if this comes to pass. There is still plenty of city staff work to be done before a business case can be presented early next year.
