If you've been to the Market before, you may be interested in learning the history of Keady and its market. For some of us, despite living in the area all of our lives, we have never experienced this popular country market. It is not just fruits and vegetables; there are animals that are auctioned off. There is also a flea market.
Directions: From Owen Sound, take Hwy 6 south 10 km to county Road 16 (watch for Keady sign one corner north of Chatsworth). Take Country Rd 16 west 10 km to Keady. The United Church and market are located on the northwest side of Keady intersection. For GPS use "117012 Grey Rd 3" address.
You can also come via Grey County Road 5 through Kilsyth to Grey Country Road 3.
