How to find a farmer in 2014

Savour Winnipeg Farmers' Markets It’s almost impossible to think about growing anything, what with the long winter we’ve had and incredibly slow thaw we’re experiencing. But greenhouses in and around the city are already nurturing seedlings  and gardening enthusiasts are already planning their planting and starting their seeds.

For those of who lack the space, skill, or inclination to manage large tracts of edibles, the Farmers’ Market is the next best thing. Thankfully we don’t all have to make the trek out to the biggest and arguably best Farmers’ Market in (or just outside) the city, St. Norbert. Smaller iterations have been cropping up in many Winnipeg neighbourhoods over the last few years making it super convenient to find a farmer and score some amazing local produce.

Here’s where (and when) you’re likely to be able to do that in Winnipeg for the 2014 season.
