Its Farmers’ Market Season Again! Genuine local farmers will be at the Ridgeway Farmers’ Market selling farm-fresh foods every Saturday 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM from now until closing day Saturday, October 14! It’s a sure sign of spring when Ridgeway Farmers’ Market is open for the season, delighting residents and visitors with just-picked produce, farm specialties like baked goods, maple syrup, honey, VQA wines, plus friendly, knowledgeable advice on how to prepare, store and enjoy their products. The farmers’ market experience is uniquely rewarding. It not only brings the city and the country together, it also brings friends and neighbours together. And although farmers’ market foods are terrific, food isn’t the only reason to love the market. It’s a fun place to be: a great place to hang out, to taste new things, learn new things, and teach your kids about where their foods really come from. Keep an eye out for the real heroes of any farmers’ market: vendors who are MyPick ® Verified Local Farmers® . Whether you’re shopping at our local market or at any other farmers’ market, look for vendors displaying the MyPick® logo. It’s your guarantee that a vendor displaying the logo is a real local farmer. Their farm has been visited by Farmers’ Markets Ontario® inspector who has confirmed that the vendor is truly a local farmer who sells only what he or she grows or produces on his/her own farm—not a reseller of foods produced who-knows-where. To find out more about the MyPick® program, visit mypick.ca. Buy from MyPick® Verified Local Farmers® to enjoy farm-fresh foods made close to home while supporting local agriculture. That way, we can continue to celebrate the start of the farmers’ market season every year for many, many years to come.
