Chapman’s Production Facility is located in Markdale, Grey Highlands

Markdale is the home of Chapman’s Ice Cream. The company was started in 1973 by Penny and Dave Chapman. Tragically in 2009, the Chapman’s factory caught fire and burned down. The company made sure its employees and the community were taken care of during this hardship and re-opened bigger, better, and tastier than ever! 

A yearly tradition is the Markdale Fall Fair. At over 150 years old, this fall fair is beloved by all in the area. There is a variety of activities including a 4-H show, horse pulls, a light and pleasure horse show, classic car show, tractor, and ATV pulls as well as lots of competition showcases to enter including baking, flowers, and crafts, photography, and more. 

With amenities such as a grocery store, banks, a post office, and a hospital, it also offers lots of conveniences.  There are plenty of small businesses such as bakeries, restaurants, cafes, and shops that dot the town offering great local foods and products.  Being surrounded by great farmlands provides such a variety of locally grown foods, there plenty of opportunities to enjoy local cuisine and even delve into cooking yourself!  Markdale is also close to larger centers such as Owen Sound and Collingwood with more boutiques, department stores, large supermarkets, cinemas, and fine dining. 

The close tight-knit community draws people in from near and far to visit and live in!  With such scenic landscapes, the 2-hour drive to the GTA is always enjoyable.
