Welcome to Rural Markham
Want to have all the conveniences of living in Markham, but with a country lifestyle twist? Then you should check out the various communities of rural Markham.
We've defined "north rural Markham" as the area south of Stouffville Road, west of York Dufferin Line (30), north of (a combination of) Hwy 407, Donald Cousens Pkwy, and Major Mackenzie Drive, and east of Warden Avenue.
Markham is known for its high quality farm land and you'll find plenty of it in this area. Reesor Farm Market, Organics Farm, and Forsythe Family Farm are some of the well established family farms in the area where you can buy the sweetest strawberries, freshest sweetcorn, homemade pies and jams, and all good things one expects to find at a local farm.
Located at the intersection of Elgin Mills Road and McCowan Road, you'll find Cashel, a rural diamond in the ruff. Settled in 1851, Cashel was once home to a local sawmill, cobbler shop, blacksmith shop and wagon shop. Today, Cashel has managed to maintain much of its quaint country beauty and natural landscape.
Located in the heart of Cashel is the Markham Fair grounds, one of the most famous landmarks in this area. This popular site is host to the annual Markham Fair (Canada's largest 4 day fair), Markham Home Shows, Shania Sunflower of Hope Spring Fun Fair, many warehouse and factory sales, and so much more!
There are spectacular hobby farms, new subdivisions, country homes, estate homes, and everything in between in rural Markham. All of them within easy access to major roads and the conveniences found in Markham, Stouffville, and Richmond Hill.

6th Annual Shania's Sunflower of Hope Spring Fun Fair is this coming weekend at the Markham Fair Grounds! This fun filled day is in honour of Shania Johnston who died of neuroblastoma at the age of 8. All proceeds go to benefit neuroblastoma research.
I have a "never-fail" formula I apply to almost all outings & events I attend. Buy all tickets in advance & arrive early to avoid the masses. For decades my time spent at the Markham Fair has been truly terrific & I think it's in part due to my formula!
