The Trinity Bellwoods Farmer’s Market takes place every Tuesday afternoon, rain or shine, from 3pm to 7pm until the end of October. This small but charming market is farmer focused and strives to educate the local community in the foods they eat, the source in which it comes and how it is grown and/or prepared.
