With summer in full swing, our thoughts naturally turn to fresh, local, Ontario produce and where to get it!  The west end has a farmers’ market happening nearly every day of the week! Another reason we love this part of town, access to farm fresh produce, local artisanal fare, interesting organic wineries, and yet another way to support the community we call home. Want to shop local Monday-Saturday? Read on!



The Sorauren Farmers’ Market

Perhaps one of the best known farmers’ markets in the west end, the Sorauren market has been a fixture at the park since 2008. Look forward to something new every week as the vendor list is on a rotating schedule. From fair trade coffee and savoury Tibetan momos to Ontario field strawberries and organic wine from a biodynamic winery,  there is something for every taste. Occasionally there will be live acoustic music while you shop, adding to the fun, community vibe of this place.  We love to stroll around all the vendor tents and grab a light snack to enjoy in the park later.

The Sorauren Farmers’ Market takes place in the square every Monday 3 p.m-7 p.m,  rain or shine, spring through fall. In the winter, the market moves indoors into the fieldhouse. Located at 50 Wabash Ave. in the square, you can’t miss it!



Trinity Bellwoods Farmers’ Market

Trinity Bellwoods Park is a hub for all things cool-Toronto.  Bordered by Queen st. West at the bottom, and Dundas St. West at the top, the park is right in the middle of multiple trendy neighbourhoods. One of those cool things that takes place in this park is the farmers’ market every Tuesday from 3-7 and has been since 2007. With a goal to be a one stop shop, the list of vendors at this farmers’ market is well-curated.  With as many as 15 farmers, including four VQA wineries and eight food artisans, Trinity Bellwoods Farmers’ Market is a place where you could easily do your weekly shop in one go. Stand out purveyors at this market include Hinterland Wine VQA, Alchemy Pickle Company and Prairie Boy Bread. Check it out for yourself and find some new favourites.

The Trinity Bellwoods Farmers’ Market happens every Tuesday from 3 p.m -7 p.m May til October. New covid rules are in effect, please see their website for more details.



Annette Village Farmers’ Market

Annette Village Farmers’ Market at Runnymede Presbyterian Church is on the smaller side of our list, but how big do you need a farmers’ market to be, really?  This little market is small but mighty.  Every Wednesday this church parking lot is packed with vendors and shoppers alike stocking up on farm fresh fruit, baked goods and delicious herbed mediterranean breads.  Pilliterri Estates  sustainable and VQA wines can also be picked up here.  We like this market for its small size and tight-knight community feel.

The Annette Village Farmers’ Market is located inside the parking lot of Runnymede Presbyterian Church every wednesday from June til October, 3-7 p.m. rain or shine.



Dufferin Grove Farmers’ Market

Dufferin Grove Farmers’ Market takes place in the heart of Dufferin Grove Park.  Since 2002 this community staple has been offering up an incredible selection of Ontario produce, artisanal cheeses, sustainably sourced meat and seafood, delicious prepared food, organic eggs and dairy, fair trade coffee, fair trade chocolate, live music, fresh flowers, VQA wines, absolutely everything you could want in a farmers’ market and more!  There is also a stone pizza oven at this market, which means plenty of opportunity for fresh baked breads. Beyond the market, Dufferin Grove Park is beautiful.  With plenty of old trees, benches and picnic tables, there is ample space to sit and enjoy your market spoils. We can’t think of a better way to spend a Thursday evening in the west end

Dufferin Grove Farmers’ Market is  Dufferin Grove Park Thursdays 3 p.m – 7 p.m

The entrance is at St. Annes parking Lot 270 Gladstone Ave. Toronto.



Ok, so we don’t have one on a Friday.



The Junction Farmers’ Market

The Junction Farmers’ Market at Baird Park runs on Saturdays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. This early bird market swings open its gates right at 9 a.m. every Saturday morning rain or shine. Located at Baird Park, one of our favourite west end parks, this little market is a fun space to peruse while sipping your morning coffee. With an interesting mix of vendors, like Malty Hoppy, making craft beer based jams and jellies this eclectic market line up makes for an excellent outing on a Saturday morning. Baird park is also home to one of our favourite dog parks, the Humberside Lawn Bowling Club, a splash pad and a playground, if you needed even more reasons to check out this cute market.

The Junction Farmers’ Market at Baird Park  is located at 275 Keele St, Toronto.
