The Farmer’s Market returns for a 14th season with 16 organic food vendors, which is the same number found there during pre-pandemic times.

Gus Sinclair, a long-time organizer of the popular market told the Gleaner the market begins June 2 and runs between 3 – 7 pm. They will continue every Wednesday until October 28.

The layout this year will feature farmer’s stalls on the periphery of the east end of the Green P parking lot off of Borden Street. All staff and customers must wear masks while on site allowing the safe operation of a market during COVID-19. At the centre of the market will be live instrumental music.  

A new feature this year will be an organic craft beer supplier offering samples allowing shoppers to perhaps get a little tipsy while buying turnips. 

The market’s survival is completely dependent on volunteers. To join the team that makes it happen email bloorbordenmarket@gmail.com.
