There are many farmers’ markets in Canada but this one goes beyond simply selling fresh produce. The Island Roots Bowen Road Farmers’ Market was created to connect the people in the community with the local farmers, small-scale food business owners and food artisans. It also promotes the 100-mile diet. The main focus of the market includes health, fresh food, relationship, sustainability and nutrition. And it’s not just about eating the food that you buy, but also about learning about where it came from, how it was made, and how you can make it extra special.
