Just over a decade ago, the Local Food Coalition got together and created the Haliburton County Farmers’ Market to provide accessible local produce to the community. Now, ten years later, the HCFMA has become an integral part of the culture here. If you visit Haliburton from June through October, stopping at the farmers’ market is a must. Pick up fresh produce or buy a bottle of wine to sip on the balcony at Sir Sam’s Inn. Our inn is the best place to experience everything Haliburton has to offer. Reconnect with nature on the shores of Eagle Lake or spend a day at the top-notch golf courses. Regardless of what you do, make sure to visit the Haliburton Farmers’ Market and support small businesses during your vacation.
