Farmers Markets in Peterborough & Surrounding Areas

Farmers Market

The Best Farmers Markets in Peterborough & Surrounding Areas

It’s that time again – with the Spring & Summer seasons – Farmers Markets are aplenty.  While a few do operate year round – most do not start in mid to late May.

The season has started and markets have grown over the years to offer so much variety.  Campbellford, Port Perry, Peterborough & Cobourg are my favorites, however, I have not visited all of them as yet.

Luckily we also have a few that operate during the week, giving you even more opportunity to get there if you happen to be busy on the weekend.

And honestly – now more than ever we should be supporting the farmers and local growers in our area.  Personally, I would rather support the local farmer than the greedy grocery store owners who are making record profits – while most farmers are not making much more than they did before the pandemic.

Besides, a tomato, pepper or strawberry fresh from the garden of a local farmer tastes entirely different than what you purchase in the store.

Farmers Market feature more than just produce – cheese, honey, herbs, homemade confections, flowers, plants, meats etc.

Later this summer I will also publish local lists of Farm to Table producers – meaning – farms you can contact or go direct to and purchase directly from them – for those that don’t attend the Farmers Markets or for those Farms that don’t go to the Farmers Market.  Many farms have their own Farm Stands or Farm Stores right on the Farm Property – look for those lists coming soon!

In the meantime, get out there to one of the Local Farmers Markets – they will appreciate it but you will even more!!

See you around Town!

Hi there! My name is Christine and I grew up in this area. I have been a Realtor over 15 years but when I’m not making my clients’ dreams come true, I enjoy spending my time doing anything on the water, gardening, going to the Farmers Market on Saturdays at Morrow Park or enjoying a Music Fest Concert at Del Crary Park. I currently live in Peterborough with my two pups, Theodore & Yogi. See you around town!

Let us keep you in the loop!
