The First Day of the Farmers’ Market
It’s officially spring, and we are incredibly happy the weather has warmed up just in time for the first Farmers’ Market!
The market is being run by our wonderful friends at Appletree Markets once again, and will take place every Wednesday from 11am – 3pm until October 8th on Gould Street!
There will be a great assortment of vendors, selling local Ontario vegetables, fruit, honey, maple syrup, as well as street food vendors, prepared food vendors, food trucks and more!
Today’s kick-off was a total blast, with a seven piece band playin groovy tunes that got everyone dancing and singing along.
The prepared food made for a delicious lunch! My Little Dumplings had organic edamame dumplings, steamed first then pan-fried and topped with sesame seeds!
Hearty Catering had some amazing veggie-options with this beautiful assortment of fresh salads and gluten-free cookies too!
And of course, there were the beginnings of spring in Ontario, with produce like hot house tomatoes and peppers.
The most exciting item was the spring’s first asparagus from Forsythe Family Farms! That DEFINITELY means summer is coming!
We were also very pleased to have the Rye’s HomeGrown team on site, selling delicious microgreens and some potted aloe vera plants too!
It got really busy around noon, with lots of people milling about and enjoying the warm weather under the yellow and blue umbrellas.
If you didn’t make it out today, we hope you’ll join us next week!
Big thanks to the Greenbelt Fund for their support of this program!
