Locavores, foodies, and people who just generally like to do their grocery shopping in the summer at a delightful, open-air, urban market, we have something for you! Every Saturday, from Spring to Fall, the Locke Street Farmer’s Market sets up at 260 Locke Street South (corner of Lock and Herkimer), from 10am-2pm, to provide you with all sorts of wonderful, local, fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, breads, pies, and more! This is a great opportunity to enjoy local produce and products, in one of Hamilton’s nicest neighbourhoods! Read more...

Always possessing an interest for the arts, the decision to take up art school was an easy one for Meg, and led to her participation in the annual McMaster Fine Arts Student exhibition, and the 2007 Young Emerging Artists of Hamilton show at Hamilton Artists Inc.
