As global climate conditions change, Thunder Bay’s growers have seen our growing season lengthen, creating opportunities to grow fruits and berries that used to be out of reach, and improving our success with traditional favourites.
Thunder Bay is home to some well-known cultivated berry crops like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and haskap, along with an amazing variety of apples, pears, plums and other fruits. Most of the listings you’ll find on this page offer cultivated crops like these.
Thunder Bay also enjoys a large and vibrant back-yard, where foragers harvest berries, greens, mushrooms and even nuts for sale. These operations tend to be smaller, and seasonal. Look for them at places like the Thunder Bay Country Market and Kakabeka Farmer’s Market.
