The Roundhouse Farmers Market Announces Its Opening Day – August 15th, 2021
Come experience fresh, local food from Ontario farmers in the heart of downtown Toronto.
The Roundhouse Farmers Market, presented by Steam Whistle in support of the Toronto Railway Museum is officially opening on Sunday, August 15th from 11 am – 3 pm, in Roundhouse Park on Bremner Boulevard in downtown Toronto. This initiative will bring dozens of local Ontario farmers and vendors together to support Ontario agriculture and bring authentic, local and in-season produce and food closer to Toronto residents while driving tourism to the national historic site. The historic John Street Roundhouse was built between 1929 and 1931 by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and is now home to the Toronto Railway Museum, Steam Whistle and The Rec Room, and is situated at the foot of the CN Tower.
The Market will offer an abundance of fresh and local food, including honey, gluten-free baked goods, organic produce and meat products, eggs, seasonal vegetables, freshly picked apples, ciders, butter tarts, corn, heirloom garlic and mushrooms. Beginning with a dozen local farmers and vendors, including DeLaTerre Bakery and SoDelish, the market intends to grow as COVID restrictions are lifted in the future, meanwhile, visitors to the market can be assured that all COVID-19 safety measures will be followed as per current government restrictions.
The Roundhouse Farmers Market will open every Sunday 11 am – 3 pm, rain or shine, from May to October outside in Roundhouse Park and will continue from November to April in the Locomotive Hall at Steam Whistle Brewing.
