We’d like to see Toronto fed with as much local food as possible. By growing hardy spring and fall crops, as well as using excellent storage techniques and season extension methods, market growers are able to provide us with a strong selection of produce through most of the year. Of course, eating local isn’t just about fruits and vegetables; we’ve also got farms producing meats, dairy, preserves and other value-added options, and all kinds of other local food businesses able to keep feeding us while the weather is chilly as well.
A strong local food system requires income for producers all year long, so we encourage you to keep right on attending through the indoor season. We’ve added a List of Winter Markets page to help you find the ones that suit your location and schedule. Here’s to hearty, healthy, local menus ahead!
