The Dundas Farmers Market kicks off the 2010 season
The reopening of the Dundas Farmer’s Market on June 17 was a great success! Vendors selling fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, baked goods, herbs, jam and honey gathered at the corner of Miller’s Lane and Hatt Street, behind the Dundas public library, where crowds flowed in to enjoy foods grown, raised and prepared locally.
Under clear and sunny skies, shoppers could buy products from gluten-free baking to wild boar, as well as plenty of organic produce. At the Hamilton Eat Local table, market-goers picked up their Hamilton Farm Map and Directory, in which they could learn about close to 70 farms and vendors in and around the city. Some of the directory’s locations had booths at the market, including ManoRun Organic Farm, Plan ‘B’ Organic Farm and La Primavera Farms.
The Dundas Farmers market will operate every Thursday from 3-7pm until October 28. As the weeks roll by, offers will change with the season, so be sure to stop by and see what’s fresh!
