Located about 50 km North of Toronto on the east and west sides of Highway 400 immediately north of Highway 9, Ontario's Vegetable Basket is the source of some of Ontario's best Carrots, Celery, and Onions as well as specialty items as Water Spinach, Asian Radish, Chinese Broccoli and so many more fruits and vegetables.
The incredible soil is the first thing you notice. Originally swampgrounds, this land was drained by the creation of dykes and canals in the early 1900's to expose incredibly fertile "muck soil".
Click on Halland Marsh for history, photographs and information on the drainage system employed to keep this valuable land viable.
If you are driving by on Hwys 9 or 400, exit on Canal Rd and sample some of the many fruits and vegetables availabe. Buy Local, reduce your carbon footprint and eat healthy!
