Ottawa Garlic Co. is located at Beetbox co-op farm by Shirley's Bay, just 20 mins West of downtown Ottawa.
For the 2023 Growing Season we currently sell at the following farmers markets:
- Thursday 11am - 4pm: Orleans Farmers Market
- Saturday 9am-3pm: Westboro and Parkdale Farmers Market
- Saturday 8am-1pm Carp Farmers Market
- Sunday 9am-3pm: Lansdowne and Parkdale Farmers Market
This project started in Marionville with 1/2 acre of garlic and has grown into a two acre crop of three different varieties all being cultivated with practices that meet and exceed Canadian Organic Standards.
The current location in the greenbelt is nestled against the Ottawa river and surrounded by protected forests and wetlands, and is a wonderful place to visit for a hike, bike ride, or river adventure. Come say hi! You can often find us washing away the day's labour just a few minutes from the barn at one of the many "secret" beaches.
Our goal is to continue to grow modestly, specializing in locally grown garlic and garlic related products. We are also excited about trying new things, and are currently learning about growing various kinds of mushrooms. Fun things to come!
