Summer is high season for fresh fruit, veggies and locally grown goodness. If you live in the city, you know it’s hard to navigate the busy streets and find a great local farmers market. Of course, many ‘out of towners’ think that St. Lawrence Market is the best of the best, but there are many other amazing places in the city to make a stop for fresh and local treats. Here are some of our favourite Toronto Farmers Markets.
- Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market: This Tuesday market runs from 3pm to 7pm weekly, popping up in the northwest corner of the park.
- Sorauren Farmers Market: Run by the West-End Food Co-Op, this Monday market is a great organic and local hotspot, from 3pm to 7pm each week.
- Wychwood Barns Market: Run year round on Saturday mornings from 8am until noon, this market is a staple for local merchants and one-stop market shopping.
- Nathan Phillips’ Square Market: A great way to liven up the city hall area, this market runs on Wednesdays from 8:30am till 2pm, and draws quite the crowd.
- Brick Works Farmers Market: Another year-round favourite, this Saturday morning staple is more than just shopping and includes kids’ activities, live music and more; it runs from 8am to 1pm.
