farmers markets toronto 2020

These are the farmers' markets still operating in Toronto during summer 2020

Farmers' markets in Toronto are still operating during summer 2020 on a weekly basis, even if lots of them have moved online or, sadly, been cancelled. These markets are a great way to get farm fresh food in the city, so it's a good thing some will still be open albeit with restrictive safety measures in place.

Here's a breakdown of farmers' markets in Toronto this summer by day of the week.

Monday
Sorauren Farmers' Market

Sorauren Park, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

One-way traffic flow has been implemented at this weekday market, and it's recommended that one person per household shop and that orders be placed in advance. Find everything from fresh veggies to fish, chocolate, deli products, momos and pierogies.

Tuesday
Cabbagetown Farmers' Market

Riverdale Park West, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Shop for kombucha, baked goods, produce, chocolate and much more when you visit this market that connects local providers with the Cabbagetown neighbourhood.

Trinity Bellwoods Farmer's Market

Trinity Bellwoods Park, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Social distancing is especially important at this market as it's one of the city's most popular. Order pickles, crackers, fish, cheese and organic produce ahead of time and pick up wearing a mask, without lingering.

East York Farmers' Market

East York Civic Centre, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

No food can be consumed on site nor can samples be offered at this market this year, and there will be a single entrance to the market. Pets also have to be left at home, and some usual vendors won't be in attendance.

Organic veggies, meat, cheese, sunflower oil, honey, baked goods and oven-ready goods are available from this reopened farmers' market in a grassy area.
