From a Winter that really wasn’t a typical Canadian Winter, to a Spring that is not acting like Spring … all farmers in Ontario are wondering exactly what climate change is and how it will affect our growing season.  After last year’s historic heat and drought combo, our greatest efforts this year will be to harness, retain and reuse storm water.  To this end, we are going to be growing some different things this year to try and raise extra funds to make “The Great Vauxhall Aqueduct” a reality.  Please stop by for a chat at market to chart our progress!   




Brick Works, 550 Bayview Avenue, Saturday’s, 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

There really is no better way to start the weekend than a trip to Brick Works!  Set in the lush Don Valley, the site is riddled with trails for biking and hiking which offer unparalleled experiences with nature right in the heart of the city.  It is on Saturday mornings, however, that the most interesting cross-section of Ontario farmers descend upon the site and provide attendees the opportunity to purchase the freshest, most vibrant produce that this province has to offer.  Many make attendance here their weekly habit but, if that is not possible, make a point of coming at least once to see this wonderful site.


Sick Kids, University and Elm, scheduled Tuesday’s8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

 There are not enough good things to be said about the vibrant, diverse and completely authentic farmers market at Sick Kids:  right in the heart of the City, you can count on the best of everything that Ontario produces.  Whether you are looking for a great selection of farm-fresh goods, replenishing your life essentials, or just out to stretch your legs and get some fresh air, there is not better place to be on a Tuesday.  Make it a habit and catch the infectious spirit that this little market imparts every week.  


Leslieville Farmers Market, Johnathon Ashbridges Park, Toronto.  Sunday’s, May to October.  

I have some very sad news regarding our attendance at this AMAZING market … a number of issues have arisen that is going to force us to push back our start date at this market until August.  Over the Winter, many customers from Leslieville have sought us out at our other markets and I sincerely hope that, for the short term, you will continue to do so.  Our absence, although sad, will not impact this feel-good market and I strongly urge you to take every opportunity you can this Summer to attend this market and see what the buzz is all about.  


If you don’t have the luxury of coming to visit us at market then the next best thing is visiting us online!  Our mail order service is quick, painless and, best of all, it comes right to your door.  We ship all across Canada with many happy customers in every province.
