丰收季节到 约克区居民可去9家农贸市场

来源:约克区政府   更新:2018-09-20 15:19:37   作者:约克区政府
York Region remains a destination of choice for food production. In York Region, there’s some 700 farms and that’s part of the reason why York Regional Council is committed to protecting agricultural and natural heritage lands.

York Region farms play an important role in the local economy and ability to provide healthy food and resources to our growing and diverse population. Many of York Region’s local farm families have worked the land for 150 years or more.

Did you know carrots, sweet corn, dry onions, celery and Chinese cabbage are the five largest vegetable crops? This harvest season pick up some locally grown ingredients and create some deliciously nutritious meals at home. This Harvest Muffin recipe uses locally grown carrots and apples that not only tastes great, but supports our local farm families.

Inspired by this recipe? We have highlighted nine farm-to-market destinations you can visit before the end of harvest season and the list doesn’t end here. Pick up a Farm Fresh map to discover and visit local farms, or participate in the Passport to Fresh contest and meet our farmers keeping things local.
