"Tis the season to be merry." Or at least be overwhelmed with the colours of all the fresh produce at our Ontario Farmer's Markets. Everything you eat tastes like a little bit of sunshine. Ontario apricots, peaches, raspberries and oh my those wild blueberries. I was devastated when I found out they only take cash. I had $30 and needed tomatoes, potatoes, raspberries and peaches. The wild blueberries were $24 but oh so worth it. You only spoil yourself once right. OK maybe 2 or 3 times over the summer. But you have to get your dose before the snow comes - right!!. Yes these are peppers, red, orange, green, baskets and baskets of them. So fresh.
The wonderful thing about the Gravenhurst Farmers Market on every Wednesday from 9 to 2, is if you are lucky enough to cottage on Lake Muskoka you can take your boat over, rather than drive. It just makes the whole experience a little more special. No I didn't take the boat today, I was sneaking in my visit between fixing up resumes, and I was a little nervous being by myself in the boat. OK OK excuses excuses, next time.

Peter Wainwright meets you at the entrance with some of his lovely guitar melodies.
Everytime I have been here the homemade sausage on a bun has been the longest line-up. Next time I will definitely have to try it. There is also a pizza oven making fresh pizza. Tacos, homemade donuts, you could spend all day there just eating.
I always make a stop at the Milford Bay Trout Farm for their smoked trout. A family and friend favourite. A little fresh baquette, some butter, a little trout, washed down with a little wine, perfect on the dock, or anywhere :).
These are just a few of the vendors at the Gravenhurst Farmer's Market. oh btw there is an ATM machine in case you run out of cash. :))
