One of the best parts of summer is the abundance of fresh produce that is available. Canada’s cold climate might be great for winter sports, but it also means that our seasonal produce is limited during the winter months. Maybe that’s why I get so excited when I visit a farmers’ market.
On Wednesday I decided to check out the Square One Farmers’ Market at Celebration Square in Mississauga. This market has been organized by the Mississauga Central Lions Club since 1975. In that time they have raised over five million dollars through the market, which is regularly given to community organizations such as Big Brother & Big Sisters of Peel.
I love looking at all the beautiful fruits and vegetables. Those bright colours tell me that they’re packed with nutrition, and they smell amazing too. Actually, everything smells a thousand times fresher than what I usually find in my local big box grocery store.
