Celebrate the season with the friendly folks at Toronto’s Farmers’ Markets! Weekly year-round markets are held at Toronto Botanical Gardens, Sorauren Park, Wychwood Barns, Dufferin Grove, Montgomery’s Inn, St. Lawrence North, and Evergreen Brick Works, and there are some winter market dates at Sick Kids Hospital, too.¬†Our List of ¬†Winter Markets includes links, locations and hours.


We’re fortunate to have expert growers who know how to extend the harvest season as well as how to keep storage crops top quality, so you can keep eating healthy local produce while the snow flies.

Now that Ontario has improved options for ‘small flocks’, we’ve got chicken at more markets, along with pasture-raised pork, beef, duck and other choices. We’ve got fresh eggs, local cheeses and yogurt, as well as tofu and tempeh– no shortage of local protein!


Market tables are loaded with treats that make wonderful gifts or additions to special menus: chutneys, jams and jellies, maple syrup and honey, baking (including great gluten-free options) wild foods and many other specialties.


Wishing you and yours Healthy and Happy Holidays!
