The Oakville Place Farmers’ Market opened for its fourth consecutive season last week and will now be open every Thursday right through to Thanksgiving weekend.

The market’s main feature is Ontario-grown fruit and vegetables, that are available from vendors including Blyleven Farms, McNiece Greenhouse & Produce, Richardson Farms, Andrews Scenic Acres, Hillsview Farms and Thames River Farms. The farmers hope to nurture the growing enthusiasm for eating quality locally-produced foods.

Ontario field strawberries, sweet peas, asparagus, rhubarb and Ontario greenhouse tomatoes and peppers are among the early new crops that will be available when the market opens again this week.

Market-goers can source other local food products while at Oakville Place Farmers’ Market, including a selection of fresh-baked goods that range from homemade strudels to butter tarts and fruit pies. Local preserves and maple syrup are available from various vendors. The Bee and Me has an assortment of Ontario honey and honey products as well as farm-fresh eggs.

Creekside Country Meats has everything you need for the barbecue. For the more adventurous, this also includes various cuts of Ontario-raised venison. They will be able to tell you the best ways for preparing these.

New to this year’s market is  Eudora’s Fine Foods and Gramma’s Knits, featuring ready-to eat signature sauces, gourmet preserves and freshly prepared foods for those ‘on the go’.
