Wednesday Market Music Cafe

On Wednesday evenings, from 5 – 6:30 pm, the Market is proud to host live music. With a mix of professional musicians and up-and-comers, the music will provide a chance to enjoy a range of styles of live music outside of a bar setting, and provides atmosphere for customers that are dining or shopping.


We will continue to work at creating a great environment to relax and enjoy the music and the Market atmosphere. We look forward to hearing your suggestions as well.

We are so pleased to announce that the Sleeping Giant Folk Music Society (SGFMS) is sponsoring our Wednesday Music Cafes with some support for our musicians.

SGFMS goals are to help expose/educate/include audiences to a variety of folk music, provide more/different opportunities for musicians to play in listening venues and maintain the standard for paying professional fee rates. We are so pleased that they feel our venue helps promote these goals and thank them for their support.


Musicians – if you would like to play, please reach out the Annet, Market Manager at indicating your preferred date and your style of music, and where possible, a link to a video of a previous gig.
