Junction Farmers Market
Vaughan - March 24th, 2022 - It was a Saturday morning in August when my boyfriend and I were heading to Queen Street West for a morning coffee / stroll. On our way from Etobicoke, we made a pitstop in the Junction to visit a market that has been on my list for quite some time (because I can’t go one Saturday without visiting a market, obviously). We traveled east on Dundas Street (Dundas in the Junction is one of my FAVOURITE stretches in Toronto), then south on Annette Street until we spotted the Junction Farmers Market.
The Junction Farmers Market provides local, sustainably produced fresh foods in ways that build the community, support local food growers and producers, and promote access to healthy food for everyone who lives in and around the Junction. One of the objectives of the Junction Farmers Market is to promote community – as shown on their website, “we value a welcoming space for all community members to meet, shop, talk, eat – building a thriving local economy and healthy community.” I could tell the strength of that community focus just from witnessing the market myself. With shoppers buzzing around the organized chaos, and music playing from speakers at the entrance, the togetherness vibes were on point.
They even reserve one space each week at the market’s Community Corner, for organizations, businesses and local community or socio-political groups.
With all types of vendors from soda makers, to cheese makers, farmers, honey producers, bakers, and more; the Junction Farmers Market has all the community needs for weekly shopping. Open every Saturday from 9am to 1p, I recommend all Toronto dwellers to experience the market this coming summer. Before you do so, be sure to check their website for updates on opening date, etc.
