Farmers Market Fun!
Hamilton Eat Local was delighted in joining farmers and eaters at the opening of the Hamilton Mountain Farmers’ Market last Saturday. Plenty of fresh local produce was available, including rhubarb, fiddleheads, and sweet potatoes. Beautiful Ontario fresh tomatoes, asparagus, spinach and apples filled vendors’ tables. There was an assortment of bedding plants, flowers, and fresh herbs; as well as other goods including maple syrup, honey and apple cider. All the vendors at the market are also the growers. The number of farmers will increase as more seasonal products are available.
The Hamilton Mountain Farmers Market is open every Saturday, from 7am to 1:30pm until November and is located in the parking lot of Sacred Heart Church – Viewpoint and Mountain Park Avenue.
Thanks to our volunteers Laura, Jarah and Bronwyn for helping Hamilton Eat Local to distribute maps and special thanks go to Laura for taking such great photos and writing this blog entry!
