City Adventure: Steam Whistle’s Winter Farmers’ Market

supportlocalfarmers-672x1024Why are farmers’ markets mostly associated with summer? There’s still plenty of delicious goods available through the winter months and Steam Whistle is helping to break that stigma by holding their first ever Winter Farmers’ Market every Sunday until February 23 at the Steam Whistle Brewery (255 Bremner Blvd, right across CN Tower). 

From 10am to 2pm, Ontario farmers will be selling apples, baked goods, root vegetables, organic meat and cheese, beauty products, maple and honey products.  Steam Whistle’s Pilsner will be available for sampling and purchase as well while shopping around.

A brilliant idea from the brewery’s Environmental Committee, the Winter Farmers’ Market was developed to help further connect neighbouring residents with the local food scene.

This is definitely something we’re hoping to check out before the end of February. Nothing beats supporting local businesses and local farmers.
