PARTNERS & PARTICIPATING MARKETS
TORONTO FARMERS MARKET NETWORK
While the rural farmscape might be what immediately comes to mind, cities, too, are (and have always been) places of signi cant, energetic and committed food production. Urban agriculture is a key ingredient of a Market City and Toronto has plenty of examples of urban growing individuals and organizations such as Toronto Urban Growers, Fresh City Farm, Cathy's Crawly Composter, and Ripple Farms.
THORNCLIFFE WOMEN'S COMMUNITY BAZAAR
Description: Thorncliffe Park Women's Committee is a grass-root organization that was formed in 2008 with a group of women from Thorncliffe Park. We came together with a common vision to transform the public space into a space that builds and enriches the community and the neighbourhood.
FOODSHARE GOOD FOOD MARKET
Good Food Markets are community markets that sell high quality, culturally appropriate, affordable vegetables and fruits. These markets bring healthy produce to neighbourhoods where it might not otherwise be available, and where farmers’ markets aren’t viable because sales are too low to cover farmers’ costs.
FOODSHARE MOBILE MARKETS
Mobile Good Food Markets are travelling community food markets filled with fresh, quality vegetables and fruits. Our truck is a different kind of food truck, one that dishes up pounds of okra and bunches of broccoli at cheaper than normal prices. You won’t find an ice cream van’s jingle here, just good food.
TORONTO URBAN AGRICULTURE
While the rural farmscape might be what immediately comes to mind, cities, too, are (and have always been) places of significant, energetic and committed food production.
