With the warmer weather and summer months quickly approaching, there is no better way to enjoy it than being outside. Getting involved in the local community and attending events near you is a great way to meet like-minded people in the area.
At the Paula Mitchell Group, one of our favourite things to do is to go to the local farmers’ markets around the areas we live in. If you’re new to Caledon, Brampton, or Georgetown, visiting a farmers’ market is the perfect way to soak in everything that our part of Ontario has to offer.
Here are some local farmers markets that we recommend attending in Ontario:
Georgetown Farmers’ Market
The Georgetown Farmers’ Market begins this year on June 2nd and will run every Saturday morning until October 15 in Downtown Georgetown on Main Street. This year marks the 25th year of the farmers’ market in Georgetown.
There is a lot to enjoy at the Georgetown market, from fresh fruits and vegetables to fresh produce. Some of the items you can expect to find at this farmer’s market include seasonal fruit and vegetables, honey, syrup, jam, deli meat, hand-made soaps and lotions, flowers and plants.
Along with all of these items, each week the farmers’ market features one talented crafter and local community group from a variety of interests at the market. This is a great place to go and get locally-crafted products. It’s also a great way to meet other people within your community.
