Milton Farmers’ Market: 2024 Guide to 44 Vendors

20 min read  •  
Danielle L'Ami

As someone who has lived in Milton for over a decade, visiting the Milton Farmers Market is one of my favourite things to do. And although the location changes from time to time, you can always be sure that you’ll find what you are looking for. 

Originally, the market would run from spring to fall on Main Street in downtown Milton. Then more recently, Terra Greenhouses took on the job of hosting the Winter Market. 

But as the pandemic hit, locations had to change, and the summer market has taken up new residence at the Milton Fairgrounds, located on Robert Street. The hours are 8:00 am until 12:00 pm every Saturday, and it is a constant buzz of visitors throughout this time. 

You’ll find that although sometimes there are Saturdays when the Milton Fairgrounds has to share its space, such as with the Strawberry Fair, other times the market will take up a temporary location elsewhere. I always suggest following them on social media or checking out their website before you go. 

The market hosts over 40 vendors! Sometimes some are missing on certain Saturdays, but don’t worry; they often come back on another day. You’ll also find a few extra visitors, such as the Milton Public Library or the Italian Cultural Centre, that pop by to showcase some upcoming events. 

But that’s what I love even more about the market is that you may get a surprise or two on top of the beloved vendors we have come to know and expect. Without further ado, here are the vendors you can expect to see on a regular Milton Farmers Market visit.

Smerek Family Gardens 

Smerek Family Gardens hails from Acton and are a small family-run market garden. They sell vegetables and cut flowers they grow, including some deliciously fresh greens, root vegetables, tomatoes, onions, and more. They offer a personalized experience and are ready to answer any questions about their products, including how they grow their produce. 

Moose River Preserves

Known for their artisan jams, jellies, and sauces, they use only local ingredients and choose organic whenever possible. They also preserve the quality of their products by working in small batches. Some of their most beloved items include their Raspberry Jalapeno Jelly and Brewhog Sauce. Beyond these sauces, they also sell smoked trout. 

Hillary’s Cupcakes

Kennedy Cir, Milton, ON L9T 5S4

Anyone with children or a sweet tooth has tried Hillary’s Cupcakes. Hillary is just as sweet as her delectable treats and has gourmet cookies and homemade lemon iced tea that she is also known for. Her cupcakes have won Platinum and Silver in the Halton Community Votes, and anyone who has ever tasted one knows why. 

Lastly, as a mom with a child who has a nut allergy, it’s wonderful to know that her cupcakes are nut-free. But I always advise double-checking before any purchase. 

Spoon In

A newer merchant to join the Milton Farmers Market on the fairgrounds, they aim to bring healthy smoothie bowls to your home using locally sourced connections. The Canadian LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce also recognizes them as a Diverse Supplier. They go beyond smoothie bowls to also include energy bites; all their products are vegan and gluten-free. 

Third Moon Brewing 

295 Alliance Rd Unit 3, Milton, ON L9T 4W8

If you are into trying different tasting beer, then Third Moon Brewing is worth checking out. They have been in business in Milton for over two years, and besides hanging out at their brick and motor brewery, they love to give out delicious samples at the Milton Farmers Market. 

They also love experimenting with their flavours, including their unique Fruited Smoothie Sour beers known as Epoch, which taste like a cross between a beer and slushie. Be sure to check them out. 

YYZ Freeze

Remember as a kid how cool it was to try anything freeze-dried? Well, guess what? Today, it’s still just as cool, and you can do it with a visit to YYZ Freeze’s stand at the Milton Farmers Market. They have ice cream, strawberries, Skittlez, and even fruit marshmallows. This mother-daughter duo will make your tastebuds want to explode with their freeze-dried treats. 

Roaming Free Dairy

Donna established her artisanal sheep cheese business in July 2021 and sources all her sheep milk through Best Baa Dairy in Fergus, Ontario. She makes small batches of cheese, including:

  • Labneh – a soft, spreadable cheese
  • Queso fresco – perfect for your Mexican meals
  • Feta
  • Semi-hard and slightly aged cheeses
  • Ricotta
  • Halloumi – a cheese perfect for grilling

Vince’s Euro Deli

Niagara Falls, ON

With over 60 years of deli experience and recipes crafted in Italy, this Euro Deli has family craftmanship that you can taste in every bite. My family is a big fan of their spicy pepperettes. Still, they have plenty more to offer, including their Hungarian peppercorn, a sweet, sour, and smoky combination, and even some delectable smoked cheddar cheese. Perfect food when putting together some hors d’oeuvre for your next gathering.  

Andrzejewski Perogi Shop

Andrzejewski Perogi Shop specializes in handmade jumbo perogies with 31 sweet and savoury filling combinations. This family-run business has been making these delectable dumplings since 2014. They have modern and traditional flavours, including vegan options and cabbage rolls. 

Kujawy Farms

Mississauga, ON L4Z 1V8

A family-operated farm, they specialize in all types of vegetables, from mushrooms to potatoes, tomatoes to lettuce. They are a great one-stop visit to get many of your product needs, all at a reasonable price. 

Eastern Woodlands Trading Co.

Burlington, ON

Based out of Burlington, Ontario, they focus on preparing environmentally sustainable and healthy foods for their community. Some of their recognized favourites are their Adaptogenic Energy Balls, microgreens, dressings, and various other eclectic super-fresh foods. 

Riceball Galz

Their riceballs are authentically Sicilian and include fillings such as ground beef, peas, and mozzarella, although if you are looking for veggie or gluten-free options, they have those too. Judy and Maria are friendly and super helpful. These balls are a great dinner option for those finicky with their food, a real traditional treat for some authentic arancini.

Beef Bloc

1487 Thompson Rd S, Milton, ON L9T 2X5

Do you need some beef? Beef Bloc is where you can get some of the best beef options, including steaks, roasts, ground beef, and burgers; all beef is raised entirely in Milton on their family century farm. They even have some dog treats for your four-legged best friend. The quality is outstanding, and you won’t be disappointed. 

Bousfield’s Apples & Cider

5408 Derry Rd W, Milton, ON L9T 2X6

A third-generation family farm that organically grows its apples, pears, carrots, tomatoes, and more. While they, without question, sell some delicious cider, cider vinegar, and maple syrup, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that my family loves to buy some of their delicious homemade popcorn each time we visit the market. 

Veliotiko Products

327 Woodlawn Rd W, Guelph, ON N1H 7K8

Veliotiko sells authentic oils brought over from orchards in the rich farming village of Velies, Greece, to the Milton Farmers Market. Passed down from generations, their process of handpicking each olive and then cold pressing each one allows for pure, high-quality oil that holds onto the aroma and flavour, ensuring that it keeps the nutritional benefits within. 

Passion for Desserts

Hanan originally started her business in 2001 in Lebanon. In 2017, she moved to Canada and wanted to continue to share her homemade sweets with everyone here. Hanan loves to bring a fusion of middle eastern baking with healthy ingredients. She makes cakes, cupcakes, cookies, tarts, and more. 

Delicious All-day Coffee

In case you were wondering, this company is coffee growers and not coffee resellers; a big difference for those who love coffee. Their Columbian-grown fair-trade coffee is both organic and semi-organic and comes from their family farm of four generations. You’ll taste the grain-by-grain selection process in each hot or iced coffee drink they serve you at the market. 

Aberfritter Snack Co.

Guelph, ON N1H 6H9

Ever had a craving for some fresh, homemade Mennonite-style apple fritters? Then you are in luck because these are delicious. Select from plain, cinnamon sugar, or maple, but don’t worry if you can’t finish them all. You can bring them home and freeze them for another snack attack. 

Glengarry Maple

4470 3rd Line Rd, North Lancaster, ON K0C 1Z0

As a maple syrup aficionado, I love tasty, authentic maple syrup, and Glengarry Maple fits the bill. Likely that is thanks to 100 acres of protected sugar bush in Eastern Ontario, where they harvest their sap and turn it into delicious, amber-tinted small batches of artisan maple syrup. Beyond syrup, they also have BBQ sauce, maple sugar, salad dressing, and a smoke rub for all your BBQ needs. 

Fenwick Berry Farm

Dave and Christine are a first-generation family farm that has been farming in Fenwick, Ontario, for over 20 years. They use sustainable agricultural practices to ensure top-quality with all their handpicked produce, from strawberries to blueberries to apples and more. You can taste the excellence in every bite you take. 

Teresa’s Garden Centre

Teresa has run her garden for over 40 years with the help of her family. They grow all sorts of vegetables, including tomatoes, peppers, and peas, through the use of box plants, pots, and hanging baskets. She has been coming to the market since the beginning. Whatever you choose to purchase, you’ll surely get it with a friendly smile. 

Troy’s Diner

295 Main St E, Milton, ON L9T 1P1

A staple in Milton, Troy’s diner is as synonymous with Milton as he with his famous Troynado Fries. It is certainly no surprise that when you show up at the Farmers Market, you’ll see Troy’s Diner as one of the merchants, except at the market, they go by the name of Scholarship Café.

The difference in name is because a portion of all proceeds will continue to fund the Chamber’s Scholarship Program. So be sure to buy some of his classics, from a bacon-on-a-bun sandwich to his famous milkshakes. 

R.C. Haist Farms

501 Memorial Dr, Fenwick, ON L0S 1C0

A family-run farm since the mid-1800s, they grow fruits and vegetables like asparagus, pod peas, strawberries, rhubarb, apples, and more. They have a great selection and are very knowledgeable about their products. Visiting R.C. Haist Farms’ vendor booth is a great way to get local produce. 

A & A Flowers

A reminder that going to the farmers market is more than about what you can eat; it’s also about picking up some beautiful local plants that you can proudly display in your home or give as a gift to someone in need of a smile. A & A Flowers offer a wide array of cut flowers, potted plants, silk arrangements, dried bouquets, and some herbs – both potted and fresh cut. 

Organic Chef Foods

Possibly most recognizable for their delicious aioli sauces and seasoning mixes, you will love to cook with their artisan creations in the kitchen and on your barbecue. Make sure you check them out, as they may have some extra treats at their stand. 

Thames River Melons Ltd.

765875, Township Rd 5, Innerkip, ON N0J 1M0

The Thames family first began their farm in 1985, where they have expanded to over 500 acres of produce, from asparagus to melons. Outside of fruit and vegetables, they also love to make their own preserves, including pickles, jams, jellies, and spreads. You’ll also want to pick up some of their honey, made from beehives located in their fields. 

Cathy’s Kombucha

1700 Brampton St Unit 5, Hamilton, ON L8H 3S1

Using the method of a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast, otherwise known as SCOBY, Cathy’s Kombucha is handcrafted using the same recipe and process found in a Monastery in the Quebec region. Her kombucha is non-alcoholic, gluten-free, aids digestion, and increases serotonin. You’ll find her kombucha to be refreshing and naturally effervescent.  

Uncle Dad’s Pizza

Specializing in their award-winning and homemade meat pies and thick crust pizzas, they offer a healthier alternative to the traditional. Their pizzas have no salt, are msg-free, have no heavy oils, and no added preservatives. 

With over 20 years in business, they have fantastic options like BBQ Chicken Pizza, Sweet Chicken Wing-A-Licious, Spinach and Feta, and more. An excellent meal for any night of the week. 

Gallant Farms

3566 Highway 24, Norfolk County, Ontario N0E 1V0

Kevin And Keara are a family business with a 25-acre farm. In the summer, they sell fresh vegetables they grow on their farm. In the autumn months, they focus on pumpkins from their pumpkin patch. 

The Strudel Lady

Near HWY427 & Burnhampthrope Rd, Etobicoke, Ontario

Strudels, a dessert of thin pastry rolled up around a fruit filling and then baked, are even more delicious when they come from the Milton Farmers Market. Their popular flavours are blueberry, cherry, and my personal fav, apple. 

Puddicombe Estate Farms

The Puddicombe farm was established in 1797 and has harvested its own fruit to provide produce to locals at the market. They also love to use their produce in hand-baked goods such as jams, jellies, tarts, and other delectable treats. Don’t forget to try some of their delicious homemade cider too. 

Grant’s Gourmet

Clive grew up in Jamaica and immigrated to Canada at 15 years old. Beginning with Grants Gourmet Jerk Seasoning, he expanded to include marinated jerk chicken thighs and his jerk chicken sandwich. All of his seasonings are nut-free, vegan, and low in sodium. If you want an authentic Jamaican flavour to bring home, be sure to try Grant’s Gourmet, as he always ensures that flavour comes first.  

NB Distillers

36 Darte Dr Unit 1, Welland, ON L3B 5Y7

This family-run distillery from Welland, Ontario, produces whisky, vodka, gin, scented candles, and cocktail accessories. Founded in 2020, they focus on creating smooth spirits for any discernable palate. You’ll find friendly service as they love to help you with what to mix with each spirit, helpful to those who don’t know much about mixing drinks. Be prepared, however, for whatever you buy won’t last long. 

LumberHeads Food Co.

Locally made in Milton, their gluten-free, dairy-free, and peanut-free kettle corn is made from simple ingredients, including sugar cane, sea salt, and canola oil. You can even see them pop it fresh on-site when they are at local events. With favourite flavours like Sweet & Salty, Real Maple, and Simply Salt, plus new flavours in the works, be sure to check them out. 

Tijuana Toms Hot Sauce

Tom has undoubtedly made a name for himself and his hot sauce in Milton, teaming up with local brewers Orange Snail and Third Moon to create some delicious hot sauce collaborations. He makes small batches of artisan hot sauces, including his signature Smokin’ Fuego and Canadiana. If you’re into hot, Tijuana Toms is a must-stop for your next visit to the market. 

Milton Food Co.

Focusing on being purveyors of fine foods, they make small batches of their salsas, sauces, pickles, jams, and more. Everything is gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and proudly made in Milton. Make sure to try their All Natural Salsa. It tastes like summer in a jar or their unique Chive Flower Vinegar. And if you love to grill, pick up one of their cedar planks to give your food some smoky cedar flavour. 

French Lunch

Who can say no to authentic French-style crepes? Options are plain or filled, and they even offer gluten-free, which is fantastic for those with dietary restrictions. Or perhaps you’d like to taste some other dishes, like their coq-au-vin or beef bourguignon? Bring out your European side with any of their fine selections. 

Allison’s Savoury Pies & Soups

8755 Holgate Crescent, Milton, ON L9T 5G7

Chicken, beef, steak and mushroom, oh my! Allison’s savoury pies are delightful, individual or for the whole family. She also offers some delicious homemade assorted soups, with flavours like Thai Coconut, Chicken, and Broccoli Cheddar. Her savoury meals are the perfect option for a comfort meal. 

Ray Woolridge

A second-generation corn farmer, and one of the original vendors of the Milton Farmers Market in 1972, Ray recognizes the market as an excellent way to sell his produce. He loves meeting all the interesting people, which has kept him returning year after year. 

I am certainly glad he does, as buying his delicious vegetables is only part of the reason that keeps people like me returning. 

Blossom Bakery

2323 Honsberger Ave, Lincoln, ON L0R 1S0

Specializing in gluten-free and vegan selections, these delectable treats all come from a small farm. You can enjoy some of their yummy flatbreads, pizzas, cookies, pies, and squares or even take home some of their cashew cheese. Their colourful vegan meringues are a must-try!

Pinecreek Honey

A small business that specializes in pure local wildflower honey – creamed or liquid – you can sometimes show up to see their observation hive at the market. If you are stocked up on honey for a while, purchase one of Pinecreek Honey’s beeswax candles. The candles are non-allergenic, non-carcinogenic natural wax and have a smokeless flame. They will fill the room with a soft, fragrant honey odour that will soothe the soul and remove airborne irritants at the same time. 

Oceans & Pine Soapworks

Michelle is the maker of these artisan soaps and is based in Milton. Each is made in small batches and is all-natural, including her bath bombs, body butter, and lip balms. The botanicals, clay, and essential oils are fantastic for your skin, and you’ll find yourself coming back for more. 

Queen Gypsy

You’ll find quite the selection of Eastern European baked goods at this stall. All of their bread, sandwiches, and pastries are handmade and made from local ingredients. Their selection offers everything you need for a delicious meal, from soups and brioche to a delightful dessert of cinnamon buns. 

Van Elswyk 

A small family-run business of three generations, they have been selling their vegetables, including cauliflower, cabbage, leeks, squash, and zucchini, at the market for years. Beyond vegetables, they also sell plants, including cut flowers, particularly peonies, and have been for over 30 years. They don’t plan to stop anytime soon.
