Valentine’s Day Ideas from the Hamilton Farmers’ Market

February 14th is coming up on the 2019 calendar very soon! The Hamilton Farmers’ Market wants to make sure you are prepared for this upcoming event! We’ve got some great ideas for you to impress that someone special in your life, or show a friend or family member that you care about them: 

1.     Take that special someone for a date at the Market:

The Hamilton Farmers’ Market is a great spot in downtown Hamilton for a date. You can get to know each other over a specialty coffee, tea or other beverage. Or grab a bite to eat in the Real Food Court and enjoy a nice sit-down lunch with tons of different food options – including: soup, tacos, poke bowls, pasta, samosa’s, sandwiches & more! Plus, if you’re looking to score a second date, you can always suggest coming back to the Market to try another lunch vendor. 

Or bring a parent or friend to the Market as a fun day trip:

A trip to the Market is always a fun activity, there are over 60 diverse vendors for you to shop among and so many great options in the Real Food Court if you decide to grab some lunch while you visit! The Market is a great place to spend some quality time with your loved ones! 

2.     When in doubt, FLOWERS:

Valentine’s Day would not be complete without a beautiful custom bouquet of fresh cut flowers from the Market. The Market currently has 3 floral vendors to choose from, each with diverse products & attractive arrangements available.  Flowers make a great gift for that special someone, a friend, or family member (mother, grandmother, etc.…) Place your order for pick up before Valentine’s Day.   

3.     But seriously, you can never go wrong with sweet treats:

A box of delicious mouthwatering treats is always a great idea! The Market has over 4 different options when it comes to purchasing baked goods including: cookies, cakes, cupcakes, brownies, scones, chocolate, & more. There’s a reason why chocolate is such a staple when it comes to Valentine’s Day – everyone loves it!!  

  4.      Cook dinner with fresh ingredients from the Market:

Skip the crowd and spoil your special someone in your life with a romantic dinner made with fresh ingredients from the Hamilton Farmers’ Market. Use ingredients that are different from your everyday cooking, mix in an appetizer platter with a new variety of cheese, or purchase a high-quality cut of steak for the main course. Let the smells & sights of the Market inspire your dream dinner! 

We can’t wait to see you before Valentine’s Day! The Market is open on Tues, Thurs, Fri (8:00am to 6:00pm) & Sat (7:00am to 5:00pm). All Market customers receive 1-hour free parking across the road from the Market at the York Blvd Parkade.

Happy Valentine’s Day from the Hamilton Farmers’ Market!
