How to find a farmer in 2014

Greenhouses in and around the city are already seeing signs of life and gardening enthusiasts are already planning their planting and starting their seeds. If you lack the space, skill, or inclination to map out plots, plan inputs and starts or manage large tracts of edibles, the Farmers’ Market is the next best thing.

Here’s where to find a farmer in Winnipeg in 2014.
