Eating Seasonally at Reesor’s Farm Market

Here at Reesor’s Farm Market on the 9th Line, Markham, we value fresh food grown close to home, and so we are proud to offer Ontario grown produce only. Join us, each year beginning in early June through the end of October, for an adventure in seasonal eating.

Just as strawberries are drawing to a close in mid-July, it’s time for raspberries, and of course, our family favourite, peach-raspberry pie!June is an exciting time of year for all of us here at the farm as we feature strawberries picked from our own fields (Pick Your Own Strawberries and ready picked), rhubarb, asparagus and peas, as well as beautiful hanging baskets. Our customers are always eager to enjoy fresh, locally grown produce again. Meanwhile, our bakers are busy whipping up all kinds of tasty, seasonal treats. May we recommend one of ourVanilla Cakes to complement the fresh strawberries?

Before we know it, it’s time for sweet corn! We got our start selling freshly picked sweet corn at the side of the road, and from early July right up until the first frost (usually at Thanksgiving) we sell delicious sweet corn picked fresh daily. Each year, we grow about 8 different varieties of sweet corn, each with its own unique flavour.

Beginning in late July we offer our own field tomatoes as well as peaches from Loffrettos’s farm in Niagara, the customer favourite sweet and crunchy carrots from the Holland Marsh as well as many other fruits and vegetables. Wild blueberry pie is a seasonal favourite from our bakery at this time of year.

By the time September rolls around we feature many varieties of apples, perfect for tucking into a school lunch box or baking into a tasty apple crumble.

At the end of our season in October our Pick Your Own Pumpkin fields and our market grounds are filled with hundreds of pumpkins and our as well as the sweet and spicy aroma of pumpkin pie wafting from the oven.
