Habib Enterprises

Gerry Building

Join our local artisans, food producers and vendors at Thunder Bay’s Downtown Artisan & Farmers Market located in the Gerry building in Old Fort William. Habib Enterprises has currently leased this building to introduce a unique use into Thunder Bay’s Downtown Market or Central Business District.

The Gerry building was once a furniture store equipped with full basement, freight elevator and interior loading dock. Where it once lay abandoned for nine years, we now offer a thriving community market that supports local farmers and vendors.

Help create and benefit from this market experience. Showcase your artistry and craftwork for the market’s visitors. You may produce and sell vegetables, fruits, dairy products, meat, fish and cheese, among other things. Provide tempting cuisine to your new customers. Become part of the recognized, local community of artisans, food producers and vendors.

The Gerry building provides an ideal location for this market. Visitors to the market have the opportunity to enjoy a downtown experience as they shop at the market and then browse around the neighbourhood’s shops, boutiques, museum and art gallery. The market will also benefit from drop-in visitors to the neighbourhood.

Opportunities and space are available for artisans, food producers and vendors. Please contact Jim Garriock (807.622.1718) for more information or visit www.downtownmarket.org.
