In the winter of 2017-18 Central Neighbourhood started working with IIFCC on restarting the concept of a community market in Central Park, based on the experience of the Winnipeg Central Market for Global Families that took place in the Park in the early 2000s. Back then, thanks to the Market, community showed the need and interest in rehabilitating the area, and it’s to the efforts of this group and its enthusiasm that we owe the redevelopment of Central Park by the City of Winnipeg, as we see it now.
The new and improved Winnipeg Central Global Market relaunched in June 2018 in concurrence with sakihiwe festival, and ran each Saturday until September.
In 2019 the Market is coming back, every Saturday from June 15 to September 14, 11 AM to 3PM, offering fresh produce, arts and crafts from our local Indigenous and newcomer vendors, food and personal services such as henna.
