Location & Directions
The Forks + COVID-19
The Forks Market is closed until further notice. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate this unprecedented situation as a meeting place for everyone but also as an employer and a landlord to many local, independent businesses. We truly look forward to welcoming the community back to this historic meeting place when it’s appropriate to do so. In the meantime, please choose to support your favourite Forks Market retailers via their online shops, enjoy our 52-acre outdoor space when you’re in need of some fresh air and take care of each other.
