Sunday Funday at The Leslieville Farmers’ Market

Howdy neighbour! Thanks for finding us online.  Welcome to our fourth delicious season in the hood! This year’s market will run from May 25 to October 26, every Sunday from 9am-2pm in Jonathan Ashbridge Park.. Please browse our site for more info. We should have (almost) everything you need here.

 



WHAT’S IN SEASON?!

    While Winter may be upon us, there are still local roots to be found at the Highmark Farms CSA: Potatoes, carrots, onions, and parsnips, along with kale from the greenhouse and fruits from the cellar!

VOLUNTEER!

    We’re always looking for more passionate peeps to join us on & off site! We’ll soon be entering our fourth 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.

     


MUSICIANS WANTED

    Are you in a band? We’re looking for 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!

FOOD STORY

    Busy? Slept in? Raining? Too hungover to leave your bed? We’re pairing up with newly launched Food Story! A brand new Farmers’ Market delivery service that’ll make sure you get your goods when you can’t make it to the market! Check ‘em out.


 

OUR MISSION

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.




IN OTHER WORDS…

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 flavor, 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 no, 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.
