MyPick® identifies the true heroes of Ontario's farmers' markets.
The MyPick® verification program grew out of a real need. Shoppers at Ontario farmers' markets often thought they were buying directly from local farmers when in fact they were buying from resellers. They had no way of knowing which vendors were which.
Now they do, thanks to the MyPick® verification program from Farmers' Markets Ontario®. Now, when you see a vendor displaying a MyPick® sign, you can be sure you're getting just–picked
freshness from the grower's own farm, and are helping support local agriculture.
