Travel Toronto! Visit Fresh Farmers’ Market in the GTA

From Our Farms to your Table

Eat fresh and Shop Local at the Farmers Fresh Markets this season

Sherway Farmers’ Market | Oakville Farmers’ Market | Shops Farmers’ Market

It’s that time of year again and the Farmer Fresh Market is back for its 26th season. This year, join in your local community by supporting one of the three GTA markets to find the freshest produce and food, all locally sourced.

The first crops are getting ready to be harvested and will hit the market in June. These include mushrooms, asparagus and rhubarb as well as Ontario-grown greenhouse tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. Add some colour to your outdoor space and garden with hanging baskets or bring home some beautiful fresh cut flowers from our local florist. Stroll the market with your family and enjoy some hot breakfast, sample local wine and purchase the best offering of local honey and maple syrup. The markets also offer a selection of delicious baked goods straight from the oven, farmer fresh eggs and deli meats.

Farmer Fresh Markets founder William Blyleven comments, “The Farmers Market is becoming more popular year after year as people are continuing to look for fresh, local produce and quality products straight from the farms. Our customers love supporting our local, hard-working vendors. The inventory at the Farmers Market is always changing based on what is in season and our vendors also offer great advice on how to store, prepare and serve their fruits and vegetables.
