Since the spring, residents and visitors have been enjoying the abundance of locally grown goods at farmers’ markets throughout Durham Region.
Now that the weather is cooling off, it doesn’t mean all markets have closed up shop. There are still several excellent farmers’ markets that will remain open to the public throughout the month of October, each displaying a variety of late harvest selections to purchase.
The Regional Municipality of Durham Headquarters will also be hosting its annual Fall Farmers’ Market in the north parking lot at 605 Rossland Rd. E. in Whitby, on Oct. 6 – so be sure to mark your calendar!
