As Torontonians welcome the summer season, the City of Toronto is encouraging residents and visitors to explore farmers’ markets across the city, from Etobicoke to Scarborough and everywhere in between.  

Farmers’ markets play an active role in the local food supply chain, provide Torontonians with access to fresh foods, and give residents another reason to get outside, explore communities across the city and support the local agriculture sector.  

There are 21 farmers’ markets hosted at City sites across Toronto, including:  

  • Civic centres: East York Civic Centre, Etobicoke Civic Centre, Mel Lastman Square and Nathan Phillips Square 
  • Parks: Baird Park, Dufferin Grove Park, East Lynn Park, Flemingdon Park, Greenwood Park, Humber Bay West Park, June Rowlands Park, Masaryk Park, Riverdale Park West, Rosebank Park, R.V. Burgess Park, Sorauren Avenue Park, Trinity Bellwoods Park, Underpass Park, Withrow Park and Wychwood Barns Park 
  • Toronto Museums and Historic Sites: Montgomery’s Inn  

The City-operated Saturday Farmers’ Market at the St. Lawrence Market is open for visitors to explore every Saturday from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m., year-round. The St. Lawrence Market is a renowned international food market featuring 120 merchants, vendors and farmers, offering fresh produce, meat and specialty items.  

More information, including a list of farmers’ markets in Toronto, is available on the City’s 311 webpage

Residents are encouraged to check with individual markets to confirm opening dates, hours, and protocols.
