Ottawa and its surrounding areas are known for their breathtaking views, trails, parks, and diverse ecosystems. As a response to a growing desire to support sustainability and healthy living, Farmers Markets have become a staple throughout various parts of the city, especially in our rural townships. In providing farm-fresh produce, organic alternatives and featuring community vendors selling their hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind items, these friendly shops are highly anticipated by people living in every corner of the city.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has everything looking differently, Farmers Markets have opened for the season with reasonable restrictions, and we could not be more excited! Supporting our farmers and shopping locally is not only a great way to enjoy the healthy products of our biodiverse environment, it is also key to boosting our local economy. Here is a list of Farmers Markets that you can now visit to get the fresh, organic and locally grown products that you have been waiting for.
