Masonville Farmer’s Market
The Masonville Farmers’ Market is opeПing for the season this Friday, May 8, bright and early at 8:00am and will be there until 2:00pm.
The Market is located in the Masonville Place Sears parking lot. off Richmond Street north, just south of Fanshawe Park Road.
The Masonville Farmers’ Market features farmers, bakers, and artisans from London and the surrounding area. This is a delicious opportunity to meet the people who actually farm your food and learn from them how it is grown, where it is grown, and to support them directly. While you’re there, treat yourself to a coffee at the mobile Fire Roasted Coffee truck, buy a sweet treat at one of the bakeries, pick up some specialty bread and some specialty jam to go with it, fresh bacon for breakfast, organic seedlings for your own garden, and of course all of the seasonal fruits and vegetables you can fit in your arms!
IF YOU GO
Remember that this is a local farmers market – you will find the best of the season, not the best of the world. Banana’s, mangoes, and oranges will be imported to the grocery store, not here!
Bring your own reusable grocery bags to cut down on the plastic.
Stop at a bank machine on the way so that you have lots of cash. There is a TD Canada Trust across the street, a Royal Bank across Fanshawe by East Side Marios, and various bank machines in the mall.
There is lots of free parking in the parking lot beside the market.
The Masonville Farmers’ Market is open every FRIDAY until the end of September. Visit weekly to get the best of the season, all season!
