Queen City Barns & Farms

T-Dot Farmers’ Markets & More
The capital city may be known for culture, sports, and numerous landmarks, but immediately surrounding Toronto is what’s better known as southern Ontario’s rolling countryside.

Plenty of farmers’ markets are found throughout Toronto’s outer limits. Head to Brampton Farmers’ Market in Brampton, Aberfoyle Farmers' Market in Cambridge, Allison's Farm Market in Georgetown, Burlington Mall Farmers’ Market in Burlington, and Downtown Oshawa Farmers’ Market in – you guessed it – Oshawa.

If you're looking for a market no matter the season, don't miss the St. Jacobs Farmers' Market near Kitchener. Dubbed "Canada's largest year-round farmers’ market", Woolwich's own St. Jacobs – featuring everything from fashion to farm-fresh products – is open Thursdays and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Guelph features Cox Creek Cellars for local fruit wines, and CC Farms for stunning Christmas trees come the holiday season. Check out Andrews Scenic Acres and Scotch Block Winery in Milton, and stick around for the Clembrook Christmas Farm. Syrup and honey fans delight in Dutchmans Gold Honey & Maple Products in Carlisle, while lavender lovers head for Weirs Lane Lavender & Apiary in Dundas.

Pick-your-own farms are something to look forward to as an agritourist, and there are plenty near Toronto. Grab some pumpkins and berries at Applewood Farm & Winery in Stouffville – set between Richmond Hill and Newmarket – or pick some pears, corn, or apples at Carl Laidlaw Orchards in Brampton. Check out Tiveron Farms in Mississauga, and grab some grapes at Iszkula Farm Vineyard in Hamilton.

Still, farmers’ markets reign supreme in the Queen. The Toronto metropolitan area plays host to dozens of vendors featuring fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and dairy – plus alpaca, honey, herbs, soaps, and tons more. Check out East York Farmers’ Market, Dufferin Grove Organic Farmers’ Market, Brick Works Farmers’ Market, Appletree Farmers’ Market, and CityPlace MyMarket – all right in Toronto.
