It’s that time of year again, when Toronto is chock full of lovely Farmer’s Markets. So time to get your fix with some local bounty, and hopefully even broaden your culinary horizons a bit. Not sure where to go for your produce this summer? Here are just a few favourites that you might try checking out.
Evergreen Brickwork’s Farmer’s Market
If you’ve never been out to the Brickworks, it’s definitely worth a visit. And during the summer, it happens to be the home of a wonderful farmer’s market. From vegan ice creams to fresh produce and all sorts of baked goodies, it is definitely worth a visit. And nestled right in Chorley Park it is perfect for a day trip: get your shopping done and then enjoy the hiking trails along the way. Every Saturday, from 8 AM to 1 PM.
Leslieville Farmer’s Market
Ever wanted to venture East in Toronto? Well hop a Queen streetcar and head out to the Leslieville Farmer’s Market, located in the Ashbridges Park. With live music every week, and a nice relaxed vibe, it’s a great weekend tri
p. Sprawl out in the middle of the park once you’ve grabbed a bite to eat and enjoy the day! Every Sunday from 9 AM to 2 PM.
Stop’s Wynchwood Barn Farmers’ Market
A little market on Christie Street in downtown Toronto, but nonetheless a favourite of mine. Some personal highlights are the freshly baked breads and raw cocoa stalls, definitely not sometime to miss. Every Saturday from 8 AM until noon.
But best of all, there are so many markets for YOU to discover yourself! Here’s a longer list, try a couple out just to compare. There’s bound to be something near you, and nothing says summer like that local food vibe. So enjoy!
