The York Farm Fresh 2020 Guide Map is here!

The map serves as a guide to finding locally grown and produced farm fresh products across York Region. It lists more than 30 farms and six farmers’ markets to help you find locally-produced products.

The map also includes a seasonal availability guide so you always know what fruits and vegetables are in season. Not only is local food fresher and better for the environment, but when you eat local, you support the more than 700 farms that call York Region home. Maps will be available at member farms and farmers' markets.

What’s different in 2020

With the COVID-19 pandemic, we know many residents are still staying at home and limiting their outside activities. York Farm Fresh members remain committed to servicing their community through this health crisis by providing a source for healthy, local food in a safe manner. York Farm Fresh member farms have adjusted their operations by adopting new ways of doing business. Many are now offering online orders with curbside pickup and delivery options to help you bring fresh, healthy food to your table.

The popular Passport to Fresh contest has been revised due to COVID-19. Rather than walk into a physical location, this year York Farm Fresh has developed five self-guided Passport Routes. At each stop, you simply need to take a photo of the farm you are visiting, share on social media using the #PassportToFresh hashtag to receive a virtual stamp. This will ensure safe physical distancing while allowing you to use alternative pickup methods to bring fresh, healthy and local food to your table. 

Supporting York Farm Fresh is just one of the many ways York Region is committed to growing the agriculture and agri-food sector in our community. In York Region, agriculture generates $552 million in economic impact and provides more than 3,500 jobs. The broader agri-food sector – everything from farms to food processors, grocery stores and restaurants – provides approximately 57,000 jobs and contributes $2.7 billion in GDP. To learn how we’re supporting this important sector, visit york.ca/agrifood. To stay informed of local food initiatives, visit york.ca/localfood.
