Spring has most certainly sprung and we are ready to open our “doors” on our 6th Farmers Market season!
Our local only, farmers first market is your opportunity to sample the bounty that Ontario provides us. Farmers, crafters, baker & artisans welcome you every Saturday at the Optimist Recreation Centre at 23 Brock Road South in Aberfoyle from 8am to 1pm until the end of October.
As we are a local only market, we will only have produce that was grown locally by family farms. This means that we won’t have produce trucked in from the Food terminal in Toronto. We will not have tropical fruit and vegetables that were flown in from countries far away. We only carry produce grown close to home and picked within 24 to 48 hours from reaching our market. Watch us grow each week as new Ontario produce is available for picking. From our farmers fields straight to your table. Early season you can expect asparagus, lettuces, cucumbers, rhubarb and herbs. But we will continue to add new items each week as our gardens and fields grow.
Our first two weekends are Garden days. We will have lots of hanging baskets to decorate your decks & porches. Sharp my Knife will be on hand to sharpen up all your garden tools & kitchen knives. We will have free tree saplings courteously of The Green Legacy, a local tree planting initiative. Children can play in our kids corner or make a bee bundle to help encourage visitations of this important member of the food chain, while you shop. And speaking of shopping, the follow vendors will be ready to welcome our long time regulars and new customers alike.
