York Region Farmers’ Markets

farmIf you love the freshest of food (and who doesn’t), be sure to treat yourself to a trip to York Region’s many farmer’s markets and farm stands. Just-picked produce tastes better than food shipped it from thousands of miles away. You can taste the difference!

Aside from fabulous flavour, when you buy produce grown closer to home there are extra benefits:

  • Less environmental impact – reducing shipping distance reduces your carbon footprint.
  • Support for local farmers helps to maintain farmland in York Region.
  • Know where your food comes from and the conditions under which it was produced.
  • Enjoy the sense of community that comes with knowing local growers and producers.

Make a day of it, and explore the bounty of produce to be found at our local farmers markets — fruits, berries, vegetables, meats, eggs, maple syrup, honey, locally made wine and even special treats for your four legged friends. Or dress comfortably, and take the whole family out to pick your own.
