Welcome to jardins Carya
We love to grow vegetables for our local community and give people easy access to the best products that Quebec has to offer, all picked by your local farmers.
We’re well-known for our salad greens of all types and flavors, microgreens, tomatoes, carrots, kale, parsley, basil, French shallots, garlic, radishes and salad turnips and grow them all with care on our Senneville and Ste-Marthe sites.
At Carya we believe that a healthy future lies with the new generation of farmers. Every year we host students from McGill University and surrounding institutions who are eager to learn the ins and outs of market gardening.
These students join our Leadership Team, which consists both of past students who have chosen to return with us season after season, and experienced Market Gardeners.
Together they are a team of hardworking, bright and talented farmers from all different backgrounds; a team that has shaped the farm into the beautiful place it is today.

Do you want to support your local farmer when they need it most?
Over the winter and in early spring, nothing grows in our climate. As a result, we as farmers in Quebec have almost nothing to sell for 4 months of the year and still need to pay our amazing staff, order seeds, pay bills, order supplies, and complete building projects that we don’t have time to complete during the growing season.
Do you enjoy shopping at farmer’s markets?
You can find us with our entire selection of products at two weekly markets, one on Wednesdays (June-October) at the farm, and on Saturdays at Marche Ste-Anne, year-round.
Does the idea of a network of farms working together to provide clients with the best products local products available make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?
Over the years we’ve come to specialize in growing 10 vegetables, all produced at our farms in Senneville and Ste-Marthe. In order to complete our offering to members and customers, we’ve developed strong relationships with local Quebec farmers of all types, and bring their exceptional products to you.
Is knowing who grows your food important to you?
