Elawa Farm is truly one of the Northshore's hidden gems. We love visiting the farmer's market Friday and Saturday mornings. Gaby, the market coordinator, and her team are always so welcoming and upbeat. Cannot recommend this place enough!
Charming, quiet, and romantic gardens are so inviting. Farmers market has delicious and fresh offerings every Friday during season. Simply don’t miss out on starting your weekend right.
