Farm / Farmers Market Directory

Pinch me! After this winter’s relentless polar vortex, it’s hard to believe the local growing season has finally arrived. The seasonal markets are starting to open up! I can’t wait to grab my basket and head over to my local market for fresh, locally-grown produce. Or grab a friend and head out on an adventure to the many wonderful markets across our region, stopping at whim along the way to antique or discover new foodie gems.

I’ve updated my Farm / Farmers’ Market Directory for the 2014 season with current hours, locations, links, and maps; a few of the farmers’ markets have changed locations and dates this year. You’ll find my Farm / Farmers’ Market Directory at the top of my site, in the green top menu bar. Hover your mouse over it and a drop down list will appear:

  1. Click on Farms / On-Farm Markets for a list of my favourite farms in Halton, Peel, Simcoe, and Wellington Regions. Check back here occasionally; I’ll add more as I discover them. If you have a local farm market favourite that you don’t see on my list, please let me know. I’ll add it to my directory and share it with everyone.
  2. Hover your mouse over Farmers Markets for a drop-down list of farmers’ markets in the Greater Toronto West area, by region. Click on a region for a list of markets: Halton, Peel, Toronto, Waterloo, and Wellington County / Guelph. It’s a growing list; if I’ve missed your favourite, please let me know. The Toronto list only includes a few that I would drive to, including the fabulous St. Lawrence Market, ranked number one of the world’s top ten food markets by National Geographic. I love that I can slip down to the St. Lawrence Market at the crack of dawn and be back before traffic; it’s open at 5:00 a.m. on Saturdays.

I am gradually building a Grocery / Gourmet Store Directory on the top menu bar too. Check back often and watch it grow.

Happy Market Season everyone! Hope to see you at the markets.
