The Harvest Heats Up at the Evergreen Brick Works

As the spring thaw takes hold (we hope!), so too do thoughts of nature’s bounty: the blooming of wildflowers and the budding of trees, sure, but also the imminent growth of fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs for our dinner table. Toronto locavores have options for sourcing farm-fresh foods year-round, but with the snow gone, it’s even easier to start looking to greener pastures. The Evergreen Brick Works, for example, hosts one of the city’s top weekly farmers’ markets. Its Saturday morning affair features not only produce purveyors, but artisan meat- and fishmongers, bakers and more. Be sure to make a return trip in the summer, when the growing season really gets going.  —Craig Moy
