This is a month to celebrate bountiful harvests of many crops that are grown in Ontario. Farmers’ markets are full of fruits and vegetables in every colour of the rainbow right now! As the evenings get cooler, it’s the perfect time to turn on the oven and roast some root veggies, bake some potatoes, whip up a pumpkin pie…whatever your comfort food is, you’re likely to find the ingredients at one of Toronto’s farmers’ markets.
Check the schedule of your local market; many seasonal ones wrap up their season in October. Time to look for a year-round market to help you keep on eating local all year!
