Howdy neighbour! Thanks for finding us online. We’re super excited to announce our 6th season in the hood! This year’s market dates are May 22, 2016 – October 30th, 2016, every Sunday from 9am-2pm in Jonathan Ashbridge Park. Please browse our site for more info. We should have (almost) everything you need here.
Thanks a million for voting us Runner-up for the ‘Best Farmer’s Market in Toronto’! We couldn’t have done it with out the help of all our wonderful volunteers and the tremendously good vibes from the community. We’re number 2!!
Don’t fret, there are year-round markets in Toronto! Use the Leslieville off-season time to visit other great markets like Wychwood Barns, Evergreen Brickworks, Sorauren, and Dufferin Grove. You’ll find local treats like preserves, ferments, mushrooms, sprouts, cheese, meat, bread, honey, maple syrup, wine, beer, cider, tea, locally roasted coffee, and tofu. We’re looking forward to seeing the first sprouts of spring: fiddleheads and ramps!
We’re always looking for more passionate peeps to join us on & off site! We’re in our sixth season and we’ve built quite the family of volunteers and friends. So get in touch if this tickles your fancy, and get to know those who keep the market ticking.
Are you in a band? We’re looking for rockabilly, reggae, soul, motown, folk, rock or any kind of music that can get people tapping their toes and shaking their hips! If you think can spread some good vibes through our market then shoot us a message!
By fostering engagement and relationship among market goers and local environmentally responsible food producers, The Leslieville Farmers’ Market increases access to and awareness of local and seasonal food.
We want to help our neighbours buy their food directly from its source (and get to know them by name)! To learn something you never knew, from people you’ve never met. We want your taste buds to dance when you try a tomato that is so jam-packed with flavour, you’ll wonder what you were eating before. To savour amazing treats filled with ingredients even your toddler can pronounce. To take comfort in the fact that your organic salad greens did not come from California, 3513 km away, but 35 minutes North West of the 427. But most importantly we want to help grow a strong community around great health, people, environmental stewardship and food. A community which values the hard working men and women who provide us with some of the most delectable (and sustainably produced!) pleasures of life.
