Farmers Markets may be best know for their fresh seasonal produce, but that is not all you can get. In many markets you can find a diverse range of goods. One vendor may be selling their hand made crafts, and the next vendor that you come to is selling fresh bread. Some booths house a wide variety of choices, and yet other have one specific product. There is one thing that you can be certain of when you visit a Farmers’ Market, you will be buying fresh.
There are at least eight Farmers’ Markets currently operating across Simcoe County. The oldest market is held every Saturday from 7:30am to 12:30pm in Orillia, since 1845. A close second is the Barrie Farmers Market that was established one year later in 1846. While other markets have been established only recently, such as the one held in Penetanguishene which has only been in operation since 2009.
