Shopping Locally: Toronto Farmers’ Markets for the 2013 Season

We are fortunate in Toronto to have a wonderful choice of local Farmers’ Markets throughout the City.  The number of Markets has grown over the past 5 years and, fortunately,  they are located are located all over the place.  If you are in the downtown area you have Trinity Bellwoods (which operates on Tuesday’s between 3 &7, with May 7th as the next scheduled market), if you are in the west you have the Etobicoke Market (opening June 1st and operating on Saturday’s between 8 & 2), in the east Withrow Market (opening on May 18th and operating Saturday’s between 9 & 1) and in the north end the North York Civic Centre Market (starting on May 30th on Thursday’s between 8 & 2:30).

 

It’s still a little early for most of the seasonal markets to open but it won’t be long so I thought it would be a great time to share the TFMN’s list of 2013 Toronto Farmers’s Markets.
