SPROUTING OFF! Musings from Mill Market


Mill Market Must Knows:

  • Mill Market’s Holiday Local Foods Market | December 23rd 10am – 2pm (Facebook Event)
  • Mill Market is closed December 24 – January 19th
  • First day of market 2018 | January 20th, 2018 – fun for everyone, details TBD!


Plants transform through the seasons from gorgeous spheres of purple flowers to bulbs of garlic, from delicate white blossoms to hearty overwintered apples, and from green fields of sprouts to round golden wheat berries.

Foods transform through cooking into heirloom recipes, happy accidents, new flavours – even the heartiest breads can be made simply with flour, water and salt. Cooking with whole foods can transform mere ingredients & nutrients to flavourful meals, shared with family and friends to create lasting memories.

Just like plants, food, and family; Mill Market transforms throughout the year. Full of greens and berries in the height of the summer, squashes in the fall, hardy vegetables in the winter and tiny sprouts in the spring. Every December, Mill Market farmer vendors make room to welcome local crafters and artisans to share their gifts with you and yours.

Visit us on December 23rd for Mill Market’s Holiday Local Foods Market  (and the last market of 2017!) to share the bounty of Algoma with your friends and family this Holiday Season!

  1. I’m sorry but I gotta ask, when did Mill market and Mill Square become the center of the Sault universe??? Seems like everything that happens here now has too happen there or it’s just not a happening..Hell, even Bon Soo , that used to happen totally downtown, now apparently is happening there for the most part… Is council getting paid to promote this place or what? Never been there and never will.. Could get to most stuff that happens downtown but THE MILL and the whole canal area is out of reach, especially on days when busses aren’t running…Something wrong here, in my humble opinion…
