UPDATED JULY 2023
Farmers’ markets are abundant in Waterloo Region, and are almost as plentiful as the vegetables, fruits and other products that fill their vendor’s stands! They’re a great way to take home the fresh produce that is plentiful in this area, and an even better way to meet the people responsible for growing your food.
