I wanted to share this city resolution from Brent Toderian on a Saturday because most Saturdays for our household are "Market Days". This resolution reminds us to "Support your local public/farmers’ markets (and Christmas market). If you don’t have public markets, lobby for them, and help get one started."
We are fortunate to have so many options to access fresh, local produce in our community. In fact, my first visits to Waterloo Region (many years ago) were always to go to the market. I know those fond memories of my childhood definitely influenced my decision to attend university here and then to make it my permanent home. I still love seeing so many families enjoying the market every Saturday! And this year we have another opportunity to pick up fresh produce and grocery items with the addition of the mid-week market at the Kitchener Market every Wednesday from 4-8pm until July 17th.
In addition to the more well-known St. Jacob's and Kitchener markets, I have noticed several smaller neighbourhood markets popping up in recent years, such as the one at Mill Courtland Community Centre on Wednesday mornings (pictured above). Where's your favourite market? Do you have any market traditions? Comment below! #365ofgoodWR
