Summer Farmer's Market in Toronto List

Farmers’ Markets by Day
After visiting a lot of Farmer's Market's in the city this past summer it seems to me that the Farmer's Markets are more about community than they are about getting your groceries done.  I visited the Brickworks Farmer's Market and there seemed to be more kids and dogs wondering around eating than there was people actually buying stuff to take home.  It also seems to me that there is a trend emerging for people to want to connect with local vendors to establish a common community and give their kids an experience with food at the same time.  It's less about shopping than it is about entertaining activity.  The vibe at a farmer's market can't be compared to a grocery store experience.  It will be interesting to see what happens in the food buying world in the next 10 years.    
I have compiled a list to reference by day to quickly scan a local market in Toronto depending on your time availability.
