A stand at the Farmers Market in Markham

Farmers Markets 2022

Summer in Canada means getting outside and enjoying the warm weather with friends and family. Another iconic summer activity is going to all the Farmers Markets near and far! Being able to walk through the stalls and pick out the freshest and juiciest fruits and vegetables grown at nearby farms, gives us all the feeling of supporting local while taking a step towards a healthier lifestyle.
