Way back in the day, before grocery stores and shopping malls, people would grow their own fruits and vegetables. Anything they didn’t grow themselves they would trade for or buy at the local farmers market. The Sherway Farmers Market is like taking a step back in time, sort of, to the good old days.
The Sherway Farmers Market takes place every Friday, 8:00am to 2:00pm, in their
- new location Church on the Queensway (1536 The Queensway). From early June to the end of October you can enjoy open-air shopping and the smell and colours of organically grown merchandise. You won’t have the convenience of shopping carts and air conditioning but really, I’d much rather take along my own cart (if needed) anyway. The thing I enjoy most is speaking directly with the merchants to find out where their produce come from. You’ll notice right away that all vendors and many shoppers are regulars. It’s not all fruits and vegetables at the Sherway Farmers Market. You’ll also find cheese, nuts, meats, eggs, sauces, baked goods, mushrooms, honey, flowers, and prepared foods.
So if you notice your fridge lacking some of the items in the four major food groups you’ll want to take a trip down to the Sherway Farmers Market to stock up.
