Regent Park Farmers’ Market
July 10, 2013 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
The Regent Park Farmers’ Market is launching as a pilot project this June on Regent Park Boulevard and is shaping up to be a new kind of farmers’ market for Toronto. In addition to offering fresh produce and products from Ontario farmers, this weekly neighbourhood venue will also offer these items from small plot growers and rooftop gardeners from around the City who typically have not been able to gain a spot at other markets. The defining feature of the Regent Park Farmers’ Market will be the inclusion of resident gardeners, growers and chefs from the Regent Park community as vendors at the Market. Musical performances and artistic activities by local talent will have a place at the Regent Park Farmers’ Market as well.
With an accent on quality and affordability, the Market will boast everything from a wide array of fresh vegetables; to halal meats including beef, goat and sheep; to small artisanal breads and pastries; to an assortment of cheeses and spices. Curries, samosas and pies are among the fresh foods that will be prepared by residents, and lend a local flavour to the Market. As an added feature, Paintbox Bistro’s Boxie will be serving up tasty treats as well!
The Regent Park Farmers’ Market hopes to attract everyone from the community and beyond, to become a part of the local food scene and to help grow this Market into one the neighbourhood and the City may truly be proud of.
Regent Park Farmers Market Schedule: All throughout the summer, every Wednesday 3:00PM to 8:00PM
