Sure to excite Hamilton’s foodies and lovers of all things local, the city’s new Strathcona Market has officially opened its doors.
The market is an offshoot of existing sister spots Dundurn Market and Ottawa Market, and all three put emphasis on selling food products farmed or crafted by local and regional providers.

Selling everything from seasonal produce to locally farmed eggs, from fresh sourdough to handmade chocolates, Strathcona Market becomes another exciting entry into the growing list of small, independent grocers that put the region’s farmers and purveyors front and centre.
The new market has famously taken over the space that most recently housed The Mustard Seed Co-op, a shop with a similar mission to provide an outlet for locally-sourced products that came to a tumultuous end earlier this year when the co-op declared bankruptcy.
Strathcona Market was quick to take over the newly vacant space, and now – mere months later – the new market has fully opened its doors and has already attracted crowds of locals excited to check the shop out.
Strathcona Market is open now at 460 York Boulevard. Check them out on social media for more!
