Evergreen started its Farmers Market in 2007 with 25 local farmers and producers, a great location and a great response from the community. Since then, Evergreen Brick Works Farmers Market has grown to become the largest farmers’ market in Toronto. Running year-round, we offer the widest variety of local and seasonal food in the city.
Why shop at the Farmers Market on Aug.26:
Healthier Food Choices
Our goal is simple: To work with our community to help people make healthier food choices. In doing this we will create a food system that is ecologically and economically sustainable. This means:
- Providing access to local and seasonal food
- Educating about the health benefits of seasonal eating and sharing the tools for success
- Supporting the local food economy in Ontario, including farmers, producers, wineries, breweries and chefs
Food simply tastes better when it is in season. It also means that you are buying food that has travelled a shorter distance to get to your table. For more information on what food is in season, visit Foodland Ontario’s Availability Guide or speak to your local farmer at the market!
