Canada's biggest outdoor antique market returns this month

May 1 2018, 11:12 pm

Forget the Antique Roadshow, the Aberfoyle Antique Market is the Antique Roadtrip you’ve been waiting for.

Located just one hour from Toronto, Aberfoyle bills itself as Canada’s oldest AND largest outdoor antique market featuring 100+ weekly vendors.

It’s open to the public from 8 am to 4 pm on Sundays from April 29 to October 28, but twice a year (spring and fall), Aberfoyle hosts special Saturday events that attract pickers and antique dealers from across Southern Ontario.

The special edition in spring 2018 takes place on May 12 and is well worth the road trip. Over 90 additional vendors will join the season regulars for a day of antique hunting.

The grounds are dog-friendly and there is a restaurant and creamery on site to help fuel the hunt, haggling, and luck hauling. Admission is just $2 at the Sunday markets, though you’ll pay an $8 premium to get in the gates at the special edition happening in May.

Go early and get first dibs on solid furniture and obsolete electronics, old school steamer trunks, vintage cookware, retro textiles, jewelry, artwork, and more.
