Canada Farmers Markets

If you’re in Canada and are feeling in the mood for some home grown produce as opposed to the regular mass produced supermarket goods, then you’re in luck as the country offers a huge variety of farmer markets. Obviously, as Canada is a gigantic country, we won’t be able to cover them all and you certainly won’t be able to visit them all, but below is a list of some of the ones that are certainly worth a visit.

The Marche du Vieux-Port in Quebec City has the benefit of occurring all year round, so you’ll never need to worry about arriving at the wrong season when the particular fruits or vegetables that you are after may not be growing. In addition to be a hugely popular tourist destination because it literally offers a taste of Canada as well as being based in a beautiful waterfront location, it also has a huge selection of wonderful baked food in addition to the traditional grown produce.

If, however, you find yourself not near Quebec but in Ontario, which is on the other side of the country, then don’t worry as this area is also known for its hugely popular farmers’ markets. Firstly, there’s the Cambridge Farmers’ Market in the nearby city of Cambridge, which is one of the oldest in the country, having been established back in 1830. And it’s no surprise that it’s lasted this long, with a huge variety of only the very best fresh foods, including meat, bread, local honey, and even food from other cultures to really spice things up.

Then there’s the nearby St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market, which has over 100 venders per week and offers ready to eat food if you’re looking for something to eat on the go, in addition to freshly baked cakes, a BBQ for tender, succulent meat, kabobs, and even a gift shop. So if you’re a tourist and want something to help you remember how good the food was in Canada, then this is the place to go!

As Vancouver is also a hugely popular destination in Canada, let’s take a look at what they have to offer. Please be aware that most them in this area are only open for a short period of time so you will need to be quick. The West End Farmer’ Market is one that immediately springs to mind due to the fact that it is very well known it the area for its top quality. If you’re not just shopping for food but are also in the mood for other important items, the Lonsdale Quay Artisan Farmers Market has it all. Plenty of food, in addition to jewellery, soap, books, cloths and pottery. And if you happen to be newly arriving in Vancouver via the Yaletown-Roundhouse Skytrain station, the Yaletown Farmers Market, located directly opposite, is a great way be introduced to the city.

If you’ll excuse the pun, this article offered only a taste of the enormous variety of farmer’s markets in the wonderful country of Canada. Enjoy your shopping!
