“George Street will be closed to traffic to provide a true market experience,” states William Blyleven, Oakville Farmers’ Market founder. “There is something for everyone at the Oakville Farmers’ Market. We feature Ontario grown fruit and vegetables, fresh cut flowers, organic soap, honey, eggs, maple syrup, smoked meat, pies, wine and much more!”
Pick up large-pot perennials and hanging baskets for your garden and stock up on fresh Ontario-grown asparagus, beans, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, strawberries, cherries, lettuce, mushrooms, peppers, radishes, spinach, tomatoes, cherries and strawberries. Check when your favourite fruit and vegetables will arrive at Oakville Farmers’ Market on the ‘Ontario Produce Availability’ chart at www.farmfreshmarkets.ca.
“We strive to have the freshest produce available at the Oakville Farmers’ Market,” says Blyleven. “The inventory is always changing based on what is growing seasonally. If you are unsure how to store or prepare the fruit and vegetables, ask the vendor, they have great tips and advice.”
