Thanks to Sarah K. for this 2011 inaugural farmers market post!
Although most readers could sympathize with the groans and moans about the recent wet and rainy month of May, our East Lynn Farmers’ Market
farmers were probably jumping for joy watching their spring produce get some much needed moisture to grow another crop of exceptional food
for Toronto’s markets.
Another season of our Ontario farmers providing great local food to Danforth East starts this Thursday (June 2) at 3:00 with the first
farmers’ market of the season at East Lynn Park. Spring veggies to look forward to: asparagus, radishes, rhubarb (mmmmmm, pie….) and more!
This year, we want to know what you’re cooking at your house with this bounty of fresh Ontario produce, so stay tuned for information on our
ultimate East Lynn Farmers Market recipe contest.
Be sure to take part in the special events and children’s activities at 4:30 every Thursday and a lot more family fun festivals to enjoy
including a corn roast, movie night and more.
Best of all, hungry market visitors can now purchase a selection of food ready to eat, right on the spot, from local restaurants. See you there!
But if a local farm is not quite local enough for you, you may want to learn more about sharingbackyards.com, where those seeking some gardening space can hook up with those with real estate to spare.
