Farmers' Market at Marylake

Photos by Barry Wallace
Farmers' markets are popping up everywhere it seems and here's one you may not have discovered yet.   It's called Front Step Farms and its located at the entrance to the Marylake Shrine, at the north-west corner of Keele Street and the 15th Sideroad, immediately north of King City.   It operates under a large white awning in front of the gatehouse (see photo below) on Sunday mornings.  

After visiting the Front Step Farms market, you might want to drive into the Marylake grounds and get a peek of Lake Marie, one of the larger Oak Ridges Moraine lakes, followed by a picture-taking of the shrine itself (below). 

...and if you're still eager for more farmers market fun, remember that the King City Farmers' Market goes this Sunday, at All Saints Anglican Church, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.    An added feature at this coming Sunday's Farmers' Market is the first Artisan's Fair, featuring a number of local artists and their arts and crafts.   The Artisans' Fair takes place on the front lawn of the church.
