This is not an attraction sight. The marsh is a farming area that has nothing other than large farm fields that are growing as long as the season can keep going. If you are looking for farm fresh veggies then you can purchase them at the market on Canal Rd.

Yesterday I stopped off at the Farmers Market at the Holland Marsh on the way home from dropping off 6 orphaned skunk kits at a Refuge. I am a seasoned Farm to Table Chef - I have a Facebook Page called Farm to Table - and I blog at Buckysview.com. I have driven by this market for years and have... More

In addition to the canals and the sight of rows and rows of dug-up onions awaiting pickup and the produce markets there is now a winery. The Holland March Winery have a fair sized vineyard and create good wines. They are north of Highway 9 on Keele ... follow the tourism sign.

the Holland march is a rich in wildlife, streams and rivers... and home for many farmers who use the rich soil to grow local food... When I was younger, I use to take my canoe through the marsh just to enjoy life and mingle with the wildlife... its nice to know it has not changed...

The lake bottom is now one of the most productive areas of farmland in the province. 'Muck farming' at the Marsh produces thousands of tons of fresh vegetables for communities in southern Ontario. Don't just drive by on the 400!

Ever since I can remember, the rich black soil of Holland Marsh has provided fresh produce for the people of Southern Ontario. This flat plain, that is the result of glacial activity thousands of years ago, is a veritable vegetable basket, and local farmers make their goods available at small stalls or markets along the roads of the marsh.

As a kid, my parents used to drive through the Holland Marsh on our way home from visiting family. I used to love driving through the Holland Marsh, because the smell of fresh vegetables would fill the air, and I could watch the workers in the fields. Although we never stopped there for anything, I have very fond memories of... More

Popular area for casual fishing and snowmobiling. Access to lake Simcoe. From Wikipedia "The Holland Marsh is a wetland and agricultural area 50 kilometres (31 mi) north of Toronto, Ontario. It lies entirely within the valley of the Holland River, stretching from the northern edge of the Oak Ridges Moraine near Schomberg to the river mouth at Cook's Bay, Lake Simcoe.... More
