We’re making headlines….

Councillor Mary Fragedakis has put forward a motion asking City Council to support the formation of a working group on Public Food Markets. We hope this will lead to good things for Toronto!
You can read the Metro News article about this development, and download the text of Councillor Fragedakis’s motion here: public-markets-motion-to-ecdev-oct-2016-final.


What a perfect time of year! Our markets are bursting at the seams with terrific Ontario harvests. Load up, feast on local flavours, and be sure to put some of the bounty in your pantry and freezer for those long winter months.

peppers and eggplants

Best produce right now? Tomatoes of all kinds, peppers, eggplants, late peaches and early apples, grapes, plums, zucchini, corn on the cob, wild blueberries, kale, beans, watermelons…get the idea?


This month, we’ve got the Toronto Garlic Festival to look forward to! Farmers, chefs, specialty vendors and educators will be showing off everything garlic on Sunday, September 18th, from 10 am to 5 pm at Artscape Wychwood Barns, 601 Christie.

Hop on the TTC to get there; as they say in The Big Apple,

a nickel will get you on the subway, but garlic will get you a seat!
