Essex, the largest community within the municipality, is a great place to live, work and play! Rich agricultural lands are some of the most productive in the province. Roadside stands and pick-your-owns are plentiful throughout the municipality, making it easy to eat local. The Town of Essex also is known for sports; home to the Essex 73's, the most successful Junior C hockey team in Ontario, and the original home of the championship-winning Essex Ravens Football Club. Outdoor fields and sports facilities support a very active community. House prices in Essex are among the lowest in Canada which makes the region a very affordable option for young families and seniors.
