Celebrating its 10th year, Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market is run by the generosity of community volunteers here in Toronto. Aiming to bring fresh, local, sustainably grown and organic produce to the local community, this modest size market's mandate is to educate the community in the food they eat, from how it's grown to how it's prepared. TBFM features 28 farmers and artisans and is focused only on slow food - herbs, berries, fruits, vegetables, bread, baked goods, or even edible flowers!
To further its commitment to environment, TBFM started a Leave a Bag / Take a Bag program. If you ever forget shopping bag, you can borrow one of theirs - use it and return it later. You can also bring any extra clean re-useable shopping bags that you have at home to market for others to use. This means no worries for everyone - even for the environment!
The Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market is one of the markets situated in a park. This is a unique way to really unite people with nature. Not only you can take home fresh organic products, you are also surrounded by tall trees and planet's little wonders like butterflies or squirrels. So if you are in a park having picnic or just walking your dog, join us here at the Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market for a family atmosphere.
How to get there:
The market is in the north west end of the Trinity Bellwoods park. The closest stops are on Dundas & Shaw street right next to the park. The light rail number 505 stops here every five or six minutes.
If you are arriving by bicycle, TBFM's team requests you to walk your bicycle while passing through or ride go around. Refrain from taking your bike up to a stall, simply lean it against a tree or lie it down. And if you are arriving by vehicle, TBFM's team asks you no to park in orange pylon area on Dundas & Shaw, because it is reserved for farmers and vendors only. There's usually space across the street or south of market.
Even though some vendors accept credit or debit cards, make sure to bring cash with you.
