Toronto is packed with farmers’ markets, with vendors setting up in neighborhoods across the city almost every day of the week. While summer unquestionably offers the greatest variety of markets, many continue into the winter, moving indoors. The markets allow residents to connect with local producers, stock up on fresh artisan goods and enjoy live entertainment year-round.

Started in 2007, Evergreen Brick Works Farmers’ Market has grown to become the largest farmers’ market in the city. The Saturday market features more than 70 local farmers, producers, and chefs, while the more low-key Sunday market offers a smaller selection of around 30 vendors. In addition to fresh fruits and veggies, ethically-farmed meat and fish, fresh flowers and local wines, the market offers regular entertainment including buskers, live music, talks and workshops. The Sunday market also includes locally-crafted cask beer from a rotating line-up of brewers.
