Back in business: City-run farmers’ markets are open again
Yonge-Dundas Square will be filled with scent of fresh strawberries today after striking municipal workers agreed to allow farmers’ markets to resume. Today’s session, which run until 2 p.m., will feature the same vendors who normally sell at Nathan Philips Square on Wednesdays. All other farmer’s markets at Toronto’s Civic Centres will be business as usual starting today. The only difference? Vendors will be taking care of the trash. A full list of open markets, after the jump.
Locavores can satisfy their craving for Ontario’s bounty at the following previously closed farmer’s markets:
• Metro Hall: Thursdays, 8 to 2, resuming today
• North York Civic Centre: Thursdays 8 to 2, resuming today
• Etobicoke Civic Centre: Saturdays 8 to 2, resuming July 4
• East York Civic Centre: Tuesdays 8 to 2, resuming July 7
• Scarborough Civic Centre: Tuesdays 8 to 2:30, resuming July 7
• Nathan Phillips Square: Wednesdays 8 to 2:30, resuming July 8
There is only one other small change: Riverdale Farmer’s Market has been moved to the boulevard along Winchester St. All other markets in the city have continued throughout the strike, with some minor inconveniences, including no on-site cooking or public washrooms.
