It’s the Season of Fresh Fruit & Vegetables and Healthy Baked Goods: Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market!

9 Comments

The snow is gone, the sun is out (on some days anyway!), and the temperatures are warm.  You know what that means: farmers’ markets across the city!  I fell in love with going to farmers’ markets last summer after going to Fresh Wednesdays at Nathan Phillips Square several times over the course of a few months.  It’s so heart-warming seeing everyone there picking up yummy baked goods, homemade jams and honey, and lugging around bulging bags of fruits and vegetables.  Farmers’ markets are so much more than just offering people a great deal.  It’s about connecting the public with the local economy and showcasing the talent and hard work that may not always get noticed on such a large scale.  There’s always something new to see (I saw and tasted gooseberries for the first time last summer!) and my camera will be there to capture it all for the next few months. 

First up: the farmers’ market at Trinity Bellwoods Park in downtown Toronto, located at Dundas St. West and Shaw St. every Tuesday from 3pm-7pm until October 25th.  I was there today with my mum and brother and I snapped some photos of the delicious food at some of the booths and picked up some vegan oatmeal coconut cookies (these things are HUGE oh my lord!) among other things.  There were booths selling bundles of fresh asparagus, baked bread, jarred honey and jams, and plenty of vegetarian and vegan sweet goodies including .  You can bet I’ll be going back for all those amazing treats.  Enjoy the photos!

  1. Hello “AtebyAte”, this is “Vilamakirti the Buddhist saint”.

    Nice site! You really are serious about all this. Great work, and I look forward to all future posts. Well done! I’ll bet you “Steve” is very proud!

    • Thanks so much for the support, it means a lot 🙂 I love doing this and it’s been so much fun. The next time we happen to see one another we can definitely talk food! And yes, “Steve” is indeed very proud, haha!

    • Oh yay, thanks for telling me about Dufferin Grove! I’m going to make a note of that and I’ll hopefully be able to check it out soon 😀

      I love farmers’ markets in all shapes and sizes. Even though the Trinity Bellwoods one is smaller than the Fresh Wednesdays at Nathan Phillips Square, it’s all about quality and I could have easily snatched up $20 worth of stuff yesterday ^_^

    • They’re vegetarian Japanese rice balls! 😀 I totally forgot to edit my post to mention these, d’oh! But yes, they’re rice balls with mixed veggies and herbs. Hopefully these will be around the next time I go because I want to try them.
