Following announcements and information from the Province of Ontario, which did not include farmers’ markets alongside grocery stores as essential food services, the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit is not allowing farmers’ market to operate. Although several of the Barrie Farmers’ Market vendors were prepared to move outside as early as March 21 to continue serving the community, the market is closed until further notice.
You can, however, still get local food directly from the farmers and food producers. Many vendors are small businesses or single operators who rely on their farmers’ market sales for their income. Below is a list of vendors offering orders and either pick-up or delivery. Please come back frequently for updates to the list,
