Visiting Market Junction in Cremona

Market Junction in Cremona

After a morning fishing trip to near by Winchell Lake, we stopped by Cremona to recharge and grab some coffee and food at a place called Market Junction. Market Junction is a space where makers of things can sell them to customers. It’s kind of like a permanent flea market. Market Junction is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday year round, from 10am-4pm.

Inside Market Junction is The Railway Cafe, which has typical cafe type food, plus a pretty decent selection of other snacks. Soup, chili, pie, coffee/tea and sammiches. The village of Cremona is quite small, but this place is worth dropping by if you’re anywhere in the area.

The goods at Market Junction range from antiques, to handmade soaps and creams, to jewelry, to furniture, shelving units, ornaments, clothing, paintings, old sewing machines, you name it. Pretty much anything like that. There’s no video games or TVs.

I took a number of pictures, see below.

The cafe offerings. Prices are quite reasonable, and there is an abundance of seating.

The seating area. There’s a washroom if you need it. Also free wifi, but I didn’t bother with that.

I went for coffee and apple pie. Apple pie goes with anything and should always be consumed. Even the McDonald’s ones.

Market Junction Cafe Food

 

There were a few shelves of books, but not too many. Pretty much every single thing you see in Market Junction is up for sale. There were some really interesting pieces, I wanted to play with everything.

Market Junction Items for sale

 

The vendors are mostly from the local area in Cremona, plus the Mountain View and Rocky View counties.

Market Junction Furniture

 

The showroom off to the left of the entrance had lots of older furniture and housewares. Stuff your grandmother would go bananas over. It was kind of like stepping back in time, some cool stuff.

There were consumable items as well, like soaps and skin cream and jarred food like jellies. I’m not sure what the prices were on this stuff, didn’t check.

Good place to find something unique.

Market Junction Things for Sale

 

Lots of bird houses, both made specifically for the market and brand new, as well as ancient bird houses from the long long ago. So many bird houses.

Bring a truck if you intend on buying big stuff. You can only fit so many old doors in your Audi.

The Village of Cremona

Neat little place. They were incorporated in 1955 and currently have a population of about 450 people. The village came to be after one of the pioneering families in the area opened up a store and post office in 1906, living in the area until 1960. Cremona is named after the city of Cremona in Italy. Fun fact: the postal code range for Cremona is T0M 0R0. Also, Aurora Cannabis is based out of Cremona. They have a curling rink, hockey rink, a school, and a volunteer fire department.

On Canada Day, Cremona has a parade and all kinds of family events. Hot air balloon rides, fire pits and hotdogs, an obstacle course and other things.

 

There you have it. If you’re in the area, drop by and check out Market Junction.
