Lifestyle in Milton
Milton’s Main Street shopping district can trace its origins all the way back to 1843. It has recently undergone a beautification project that includes new sidewalks, streetlights, trees, and landscaping. The Victorian buildings that line Main Street are occupied by home decor and furniture shops, gift shops, clothing stores, restaurants and professional offices. Every Saturday from May to October, Main Street hosts the Milton Farmers Market where you can purchase “picked fresh this morning” produce while admiring the magnificent backdrop of the Niagara Escarpment.
East of downtown Main Street you will find numerous car dealerships, strip malls, and fast food franchises. The Milton Mall, located at 55 Ontario Street South, is anchored by a Zellers department store and includes over 40 shops and services.
Milton has a plethora of pick-your-own farms located north of Highway 401, including, Chudleigh’s off Highway 25, which is known for its apple picking and fresh baked goods.
