Farmers' Markets to Visit in Canada

Province of Canada - William Felker Photography

With summer in the rearview and winter fast approaching, we've been taking advantage of Canada's fleeting autumn season at our local farmer's market. While shopping for rhubarb at the St. Lawrence Market in Toronto over Thanksgiving weekend, we realized that fresh produce has a special place in the hearts of Canadians. There's something about buying apples by the basket and picking up a warm baguette that makes us proud of agriculture and small businesses in our country. This is our list of reliable farmer's markets to visit from coast to coast this fall.
