Seasonal Farmers Markets Opening Across Grey County Starting Today


Farmers’ markets across Grey County are scheduled to open over the next few weeks as the produce list grows with the season’s warmer weather.

Area markets already boast a wide variety of local products including baked goods, fruits and vegetables, meat, eggs, and cheese, sweeteners and prepared foods. Right now, watch for locally-grown asparagus, rhubarb and spring greens plus wild harvested foods like fiddleheads and ramps to get a true taste of the season.

Local customers are the foundation for a successful community market. Buying at least some of your food from farmers’ markets ensures maximum freshness, great taste and also helps to support local small businesses. For visitors the farmers’ market is a great way to get a true “flavour” of the area.

Here’s a list of market dates and times to help you find the one most convenient for you:

  • Dundalk – Fridays 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. starting May 15th.
  • Flesherton – Saturdays 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting May 16th: celebrating 25 years in 2015 with an anniversary party on June 6th.
  • Keady – Tuesdays from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.: open year ‘round with the 100% Farmers’ Market Area from May 19th to October 13th.
  • Meaford – Fridays 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. starting June 5th.
  • Owen Sound – open year ‘round Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., more seasonal vendors arriving all the time.
  • Thornbury (new location, formerly in Clarksburg) – Sundays 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting June 7th, 10 vendors confirmed with more being added.
  • Williamsford – Fridays 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. starting May 15th.

Grey County is Food Truck Friendly!


Food trucks are a popular and fast-growing segment of the food industry, offering interesting menu options and creating destinations wherever they locate.

With the strategic goal to support all types of food-related businesses as a guiding principle, Grey County has made space available for businesses wishing to operate food trucks on three county-owned properties.

Effective immediately, food truck operators can apply for permission to use space in the parking areas at Grey Gables in Markdale, Grey Roots Museum & Archives on Grey Road 18 and at the Grey County Administrative building in Owen Sound. Food truck operators wishing to operate on county properties must be businesses in good standing with all applicable inspections completed and licenses, permits and insurance in place.

An online application form can be found at www.grey.ca/services/food-truck-location-permit/. Businesses will also find Grey County’s policy and procedure document and a detailed agreement at that page. Grey County encourages other food vendors to apply for location permits via the online application.

For more information, Grey County is Food Truck Friendly media release.
