Farmer’s Markets & Foraging

You can select and pick your own fruits and vegetables at many u-pick locations or you can purchase pre-picked as well.  U-picks offer fresh air and exercise while you pick and you have the opportunity to talk to the growers one-on-one.  Make it a social event and include friends and family; take along a picnic lunch and make a day of it checking out attractions along the way.  First it was eat local now it's eat wild.  Foraging for wild edibles is growing in popularity around the province.  There's nothing more satisfying than foraging for wild berries, mushrooms and roots.  Be sure to consult with those who know.  When in doubt, don't pick it.

Foraging is from spring to late fall in Manitoba.
