So why do markets matter?

According to the Declaration of the 9th International Public Markets Conference held in March 2015, markets are:

  • Nexus points linking urban and peri-urban regions…
  • Dynamic, inclusive and safe spaces…
  • Vital centres of local food systems…
  • Avenues for the promotion and preservation of local culture…
  • Engines for entrepreneurship…
  • Centres of neighbourhoods….

and in Toronto, they’re the funnest, tastiest places to be! Come on out an find a market to love this season!

  1. Do you have a calendar of Farmers Markets available through the GTA (including Brampton)?

    Our organization would like to publicize it to encourage families to visit, purchase and engage with their local farmers this summer.

  2. Hello,
    The usual spot to find markets throughout the GTA is http://www.greenbeltfresh.ca. The site is currently being prepared for re-launch around the end of May. If you need listings in the meantime, Edible Toronto also has a great online list of farmers’ markets. Thanks for helping to promote them!
