Our growing season may be relatively short, but the Muskoka region is full of incredible, local taste sensations. Here in cottage country, you can experience the best in farm fresh foods now and into the fall season. But there’s more to our farmers’ markets than incredible culinary delights. Our markets also feature artists from around the region.

The Huntsville 100k Farmers’ Market has recently announced a new option this summer. As reported by the Huntsville Doppler, if you have an abundance of veggies growing in your garden you can have your own booth or join a group of gardening friends to share the fruits of your labour.  Each Saturday through the end of August, this market offers more than fresh-grown foods within 100 kilometres of Huntsville. You’ll find other food items such as sweet honey, cured meats and fresh-squeezed lemonade. Beyond food, you can also check out local arts and crafts such as paintings, wood carvings and fibre arts.

There are just a few more weeks of time left to visit the Baysville Farmers’ Market which ends at the end of August. Here you’ll find local fruits and vegetables, fresh and frozen meats – ideal for a winter store for excellent eating year-round. This market is also known for its seafood selections and sweet baked goods to choose from, alongside some local artists’ booths.

For an extended Farmers’ Market season check out the Huntsville Farmer’s Market located at the Canadian Tire Parking lot on Saturdays through October. Another later market is in  Bracebridge on Saturdays at Memorial Park through early October. Either one is ideal for later season varietals and finding the best in local foods for your Thanksgiving holiday. Both of these markets also feature local artists with handcrafted jewelry, sculptures, paintings and more to choose from.

Summer in Muskoka is an ideal time to enjoy the finest in food and art that the region has to offer. When you support local farmers and artists, you support your community, your friends and neighbours. Whether you’re a year-round resident or seasonal visitor, our farmers’ markets are an excellent way to get to know Huntsville and other nearby communities.
