W’ve heard from a number of shoppers that they would like to see more fresh vegetables at the market. This week we have four vendors with fresh produce.
Samsara Fields and Greenhouse Eatery both have fresh organic greens and veggies for sale. So Delish and Nith Valley each have a large selection of produce, but are selling most of it by pre-order. Check out their links in the vendor listing below to order in advance.
There are a couple of significant absences this week. Spade & Spoon will miss her usual market visit this week due to construction deadlines on her new farm property. Ambrosia Eastern European Foods will be absent again this week, but is confirmed for August 19 and 26. Sorry about that. We know you all miss her food!

What else can you do at Montgomery’s Inn right now?
As part of HistoricTO, Montgomery’s Inn is offering time-ticketed walking tours Wednesdays through Sundays. Tours are sixty minutes in length. Admission is pay-what-you-can (PWYC) with a suggested donation of $10. The tour will cover the Montgomery’s farm, the story of Joshua Glover (an escaped enslaved person who worked at the Inn for decades), Indigenous history, as well as the story of the Chinese market gardeners (which inspired us to start the Farmers Market in the first place!)
The tour, which does not include the grounds or the interior of Montgomery’s Inn, includes brief strolls (some on an incline) to approximately five points between Montgomery’s Inn and Mimico Creek, along with periods of standing (about 5 minutes each) and one exterior stair case.
Other City of Toronto History Museums are also offering walking tours. Learn more here.
To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, HistoricTO guidelines include lower ratios and capacity, physical distancing, and mandatory health screening. The interior of the building will remain closed to the public until September.
