If you answered "Other", please describe:
I like having local produce - which I believe should be labelled as such. When it is fresh, the quality is wonderful. When local is not in season, I’d like to have greater access to good quality produce.

The high point of my week is socializing with my friends weekly at the Kitchener market over a delicious cappuccino and shared baked goods. I enjoy also seeing the same people over the years. I love the feeling of knowing the vendors and having them tell me about their products - from fruit/veg to honey to soup to meat. I love the diversity that we have with the multitude of people who come. Perhaps more diverse foods, not necessarily local, with vendors who are happy to explain how to use them would make it better. I like the variety of music, presented by players downstairs and upstairs. I feel that it is my market. Chairs and tables could be more comfortable and the bathrooms could be cleaner; still love it!

We LOVE the Kitchener Market! Watching the interactions and smiles between vendors and customers, watching people from all walks of life shopping together, and standing and chatting, and meeting for coffee... It's a highlight of our week. There's almost nothing else like a farmer's market for these kinds of community-building interactions. The market is truly invaluable - a real treasure. We're there almost every week, and when we can't make it, we really miss it!
