Vegetables at Farmer's MarketIt’s BAAAAACK!

You know that winter is gone and summer is approaching when the Milton Farmers Market is back open for business.  From 7AM to 12PM you can sample more than 40 vendors fresh produce, great food, fantastic people and even catch a glimpse of Milton’s own treasure, Ann Kornuta, as she works her magic and paints another great masterpiece while entertaining the crowd.

From the Chambers website:

Every Saturday morning from 7:00 AM to 12:00 PM
From May 14 to October 8, 2011
Downtown Milton on Main Street from Martin to James

Check out the 2011 Farmers’ Market Vendors

Nestled in the foot of the scenic Niagara Escarpment, the Milton Farmers’ Market has been bringing farm-fresh goodness and old-fashioned hospitality to Main Street, in downtown Milton, since 1972. Our farmers proudly display “picked fresh this morning” produce and the streets come alive with artisans and flower vendors. The Milton Chamber of Commerce operates the weekly Saturday morning event from May through October and is one of Ontario’s best outdoor Farmers’ Markets. The 2010 Market will host over 40 vendors.

The most popular spot at the market is the Chamber Scholarship Café, home of the “bacon-on-a-bun” the café sells this delectable treat to all visitors to the market. The Café is also operated by the Chamber and generates funds for the Chamber Scholarship Fund which offers annual scholarships to all local high schools. A great breakfast for a great cause!

I know I’m excited about the start of the Market.  If you havent had the opportunity to take it in, I strongly urge you to head out to Downtown Milton and take in the atmosphere.  And yes, the “bacon-on-a-bun” is AWESOME!

See you there.

    Can’t wait! The farmer’s market is probably my favourite aspect of life in Milton, where city really does meet country every Saturday morning!

    There’s nothing like wandering around on Main St. on a sunny Saturday morning with a coffee or a bacon on a bun and purchasing the ingredients for that night’s dinner… steaks, fresh fruit and veggies, homemade strudel or pies… mmmmmm.

    See you there!

    Hate to sound like a commmercial for this but I cant help it. TONS of veggies and fruits to chose from local producers and meat pies and cheese and jams and…well you get the point.

    The Farmers Market here is normally one of the top 3 things people love most about Milton. So, dear readers, if you havent had the chance to go yet….GO! Hopefully we’ll see you there Saturday.
