A visit to the Welland Farmers’ Market – 10 September 2011

posted in: Uncategorized | 0
Here are a few vignettes and photos taken at the Welland, Ontario Farmers’ Market . The official location is Welland Market Square, 50 Market Square, Welland, Ontario.
The shoppers are a varied bunch. I heard several languages being spoken: English, French, Polish, Russian, Italian and Portuguese. It was wonderful to hear everyone talk and rejoice at the bounty of the season.
The produce was beautiful and soooo fresh.  I was glad to see some heirloom vegetables and free range meat for sale there as well. I wish that there were more vendors of heirloom veggies. The taste is heirloom vegetables is so superior to the modernized hybrids so as to be a different vegetable.
The market reminded me of the justifiably renowned Atwater Market in Montreal and that is a good thing. This is very much a community market – I advise that you be there by noon on Saturdays as the place is usually vacated by 2:00 p.m.
