Ontario Travel to Fresh Veg North of Toronto

While listening to today's Fresh Air interviews of chefs and farmers on CBC and their excitement surrounding the fresh asparagus, reminded me to head over to Barrie's farmers market. I had may first taste of fresh asparagus last week after visiting Barrie Hill farm just north of Barrie. I actually enjoyed two raw spring spears on the way home.......... crisp and delicious. See Ontario Farmers' Markets for a location near you. Today's Globe and Mail features Cottage Country markets, farms and road side stands.
