Farmers’ Markets don’t have Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays. What they do have is lovely, real, farm-grown and hand-made things that make gift-giving sweet for both the giver and the receiver.
Think about treating your dear ones to honey, jams, goats’ milk soap, beeswax candles, preserved wild foods, dried herb blends, herbal teas or locally roasted coffee, seeds, skin creams, or the other goodies you’ll find in abundance at our winter markets.
Our seasonal eating page will help you plan menus for deliciously local feasts, too. Wishing all our supporters full bellies and warm hearts this holiday season!
So it ain’t summer anymore, but you’ve still got to eat, and farmers still have to earn a living. The solution?
Come on out to a year-round Toronto Farmers’ Market!
You’ll be surprised at what a remarkable selection of foods continues to be available. Farmers who know they’ve got loyal local customers to feed can stretch the growing season with hoophouses to moderate chilly weather, plant hardy crops that thrive at lower temperatures, and save the harvest for us with excellent storage techniques.
Throughout the city we’ve been adding more choices for year-round markets; take a look at our list and find one to keep you well fed right through the winter!

If You Ate Today, Thank a Farmer….
Whatever the slogan, this is, indeed a month to express appreciation for the wonderful food our farmers grow for us. We hope you can celebrate the harvest with hearty local feasts.
Over 1,000 people signed on to request that the farmers’ market at the Toronto Botanical Gardens continue through the winter, so we’ve got another year-rounder on our list!
