Farmer’s Markets are Less than a Month Away
Although this post has nothing to do with real estate, I am excited to talk about today’s topic. I am a HUGE fan of farmer’s markets for so many reasons and more and more keep popping up around the city each year. Which means more and more of the city’s population has access to fresh, locally grown food.
This was definitely not something on my radar as a young man, when my diet rarely contained a vegetable, but as I get older and wiser about my body and what it needs, I’ve definitely started paying attention. And then throughout the long winters of years past, my wife and I have probably watched a few too many food documentaries on Netflix, and now I am committed to pulling my dollars away from factory farms and corporate conglomerates as much as possible. So farmers markets tick all the right boxes for me and I love to go out and see what is on offer.
The trend is definitely gaining momentum, and so the region of Peel created this really cool map showing you not only farmers markets, but local farms that you can purchase from directly. This movement of supporting local farming is great to see, and as more people support it, the more viable these small farms can be. Here is a link to the map:
