“Bob Chorney wants to put farmers back in farmers’ markets.

The executive director of Farmers’ Markets Ontario is tired of so-called “hucksters” who simply resell produce they’ve purchased wholesale and then pass it off as their own at markets — often undercutting the prices of career farmers.

So Chorney is pitching a certified market for Toronto next year that would be open only to farmers who grow their own goods, the first of its kind in Canada.”
