Trinity Bellwoods Host To Newest Farmer's Market

My garden is sprouting and I'm excited for fresh vegetables in a few weeks. Until my veggies are ready to eat, though, I always like going to a farmer's market. I found out that this summer, there's going to be an addition to Toronto's line up of fresh veggie vendors.

The Friend's of Trinity Bellwoods have announced that the park will host a farmer's market every Tuesday, beginning on June 5th. The market will be set up in the North West end of the park, along Dundas Street W. between Shaw and Crawford Streets. Ride your bike, walk in or take the Queen or Dundas streetcars (and bring your own bags) to round out your green shopping experience.

The nice thing about the Trinity Bellwoods Farmer's Market (let's just call it the TBFM) are the hours. They're going to run from 3pm to 7pm. Some other local markets only operate in the morning/early afternoon, like the one at City Hall and the Metro Hall market. This makes a quick drive by on my bike possible after work, which is key, as I'm not an early riser.

Expect 12-20 booths at the TBFM, selling organic, local goodness. Participating farms include the Plan B Organic Farm, the Quinte Organic Farmer's Cooperative, and the Twin Creeks Farm and Garden.

Other new markets around the city include the Brick Works, Withrow Park (on the Danforth between Logan and Carlaw) and Wychwood Barns (611 St. Clair West). No matter where you are, you'll be able to pick up every fresh ingredient you need to eat healthy, and equally as important, locally!
