Markdale was the third stop on our Tale of a Town X Ontario Tour!

 This quaint town is in the heart of the gorgeous Grey County and, at one time, had the largest industrial assessment per capita in Canada.

These days, Markdale is famous for being the home of Chapman's Ice Cream - celebrating 40 years next summer!

The main street in Markdale is called Main Street, and the main intersection is at Toronto Street which takes you all the way to... you guessed it, Toronto!

Listen to our podcast here to find out more about this story filled town!
