“Holland Marsh canals, onions, carrots and wine?”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

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 true meaning of nature where we visit their habitat”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

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...

“Gardening!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

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!

“Stop here in the summer to buy fresh vegetables.”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

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. I typically go to the ones on Highway 9 because they're convenient when travelling between Orangeville and Newmarket. In the autumn, they sell fresh, delicious apple cider and baskets of crisp apples that make the most incredible pies and cakes. There's some interesting construction along the marsh right now as they move the river. I would imagine they're doing this for safety. For over 60 years, drivers have been running their cars into that river on their way home from the bar!
