It seems as if there is a farmers’ market occurring every day in Etobicoke. If it happens to be Saturday, it’s the Etobicoke Civic Centre Farmers Market. And boy is it busy.
The Etobicoke Civic Centre Farmers Market occurs every Saturday from 8am to 2pm running from early June to late October. What you’ll find are the freshest fruits and vegetables from gigantic peaches to bright red peppers. The word “organic” gets thrown around a lot but everything here just seems to look and taste as if it was picked just days prior. Prices tend to be just a tad more expensive than what you’ll find at a supermarket when they run their specials. But taking a look around it doesn’t seem like anyone is bothered by this. I guess it’s because everything looks so great and buying from the “little guy” seems to make sense.
There are lineups of ten people deep for fresh eggs with similar lineups for apple fritters dunked in maple syrup. You’ll also find bread stands and meat carts. Parking can be found onsite behind the civic centre or at the park across the street. Bring your own bags to be environmentally sound!
No matter the time of year it is make it a practice to visit at least one of the many farmers market in Etobicoke. Trust me, you’ll miss them during the winter months.
