The 411 on Farmers’ Markets in the 416

The 411 on farmers’ markets in the 416

Nothing says summer quite like farm-fresh veggies straight from your local farmers’ market. But what about COVID-19 restrictions? Have they impacted the usual markets? Are there any even open right now?

Good news! Many Toronto farmers’ markets are open with some changes in the way they’re operating. You’ll need to bring your mask with you and wear it while walking through. Some spots also have social distancing rules in place that keep people moving in one direction, so if you want to view a stall you’ve already walked past, you have to re-enter from the front. Ultimately, the new farmers’ market protocols are not too bad at all.

To help you find a market near you, I’ve done a bit of research. All the markets are listed by neighbourhood and categorized alphabetically of course—you know me, a stickler for seamless organization.

Though many farmers’ markets aren’t yet hosting vendors who supply non-essential items, I have you covered if you want to shop local for gifts and the like. Let’s connect!

I love supporting small businesses and am always happy to hear that others do too.
