In what is an historical building that
housed a furniture factory, the Southampton Market has become a
destination of choice for visitors and locals alike.
The 140,000 sq. ft spread over two acres is the answer to every
shopper's dream and, yet, the integrity of the building has been
preserved both outside and in. As soon as you enter the front door, you
can appreciate the craftsmanship of the building. The smell of the

Stroll through toward the back and you will find one of the largest
inventories of linens found anywhere. There are quilts and bedding,
shower curtains and bath accessories, all in a rainbow of vibrant
colours that assault the senses. For the crafty person, there are craft
paints, skeins of wool and patterns. If and when you finally get through
the linens, you'll find even more in a room filled with fashions in the
latest styles for all ages.
The Market has earned a reputation for variety and for carrying one of
the largest inventories of hand-crafted pine, oak and ash furnishings
found anywhere. There are exquisite dining sets, dressers and
heirloom style armoires, sleigh beds, occasional tables, wooden coat
stands and deacon benches, to name only a few.
Whether your home is in the Craftsman
style, old-world country or eclectic
contemporary, you will find the perfect accent piece for every room in
your home on the second floor.
Looking for kitchenware? No problem at
Market. With cookware, storage containers,
dishes and utensils of every description any
kitchen can be fully equipped with one stop.
No home is complete without esthetically beautiful accents and, again on
the second floor, there are paintings and prints for every taste and
lifestyle, including posters perfect for framing.
For the `do-it-yourself' (DIY) project, there is every conceivable thing
you will need ... bins of nails, screws, nuts and bolts, newel posts,
scrap wood table tops and even second-hand furniture that may need only
a light refinishing.
Southampton Market is more than a market - it's an experience for every
age. During the summer, it has become the ideal spot for visitors to
spend a few hours languishing and browsing through the myriad of
unique and interesting items. For local residents, it can mean locating
that hard-to find item right around the corner. Located on Hwy 21 in
Southampton, the Market cannot, and should not, be missed. For even
