Hello Baby! 

241 Charlotte St.


    We have officially partnered with Hello Baby! to offer services for children and families on our market days. Just through the breezeway at 241 Charlotte St. (corner of Charlotte and Aylmer), you can find a safe and quiet place to feed your baby, change a bum or simply get out of the sun or rain and enjoy a family-friendly space. With a lovely play room for kids of all ages and friendly, welcoming hosts, we're lucky to share this little sanctuary with you.
