Country Markets - The best of the best

We just returned from a visit to Port Hope over the weekend and stopped on the way home at Price's Country Market in Bowmanville. What a great little find. The BEST corn ever!!! You could eat this stuff as is - so sweet and tender. Also wild blueberries, strawberries that taste like candy, fresh beans. Love the place. The people were very nice too!

What little gems have you discovered this summer?

  1. I love the elora market, billed as the world's smallest. It's in a wee park and there are maybe 12 vendors, all of them kind of eccentric. It's a great day trip from T.O - neat shops & restaurants, and if you are into driving, there is an excellent foodshop in the Fergus Market, and some organic dairies and cheese manufacturers in Arthur; all towns that are close to Elora.

    1. I like Grandma Lambe's for yummy pies, en route to Sauble Beach, McGregor PP or Tobermory.

      When the inner city congestion gets me down, I take my kid to Whittamore's Farm for the day. I like the farm market and pick your own. Great butter tarts too.

      When I lived in Guelph, I always enjoyed the farmers market.
