Stand outside the Gordon Street entrance of the Farmers' Market. Walk north, veering right under the railway bridge and onto Wilson, turn right at Carden Street, proceed past City Hall and turn right onto Wyndham; walk down Wyndham, under the railway bridge and past the Armories. Turn right at Farquhar Street, then right again on Fountain Street. Go north. The Armories will be on your right, partially hidden by a big stone wall. Enter the Farmers' Market.
You have just walked Market Square - the first area cleared by the settlers in 1827, the year Guelph began. You have also visited all the locations of the Guelph Farmers' Market over the past 180 years because although the market has had several homes, ever since Guelph's inception, it has always been located somewhere in this block.
The walk around Market Square is a trip through time which holds a microcosm of the history of Guelph, Ontario and indeed agriculture in Ontario.
