Markets Return To Downtown Goderich

The return of the farmer’s market and the flea market in Goderich last weekend was a successful kick-off to the summer according to the town’s Re-Build Committee chair.

John Grace says he expects even more people will come out as they realize the markets are back at their old locations.

“For some of the stores on the¬†sidewalk side on the outside ring, there was a little less traffic than there was in the last couple of years,” says Grace. “But overall it was a success and the foot traffic will come back as people get used to going to the market on the square itself.”

Grace adds one of the big changes this year is that vehicles are no longer permitted on the Courthouse Park and he says that’s working well.
