Pop-Up Pick: a quaint fruit stand wedged between condos on King West

The vacant lot at 369 King West, across from Mountain Equipment Co-op, will eventually become yet another downtown condo. Before that happens, though, it’s providing one of Toronto’s most densely populated urban areas with a little slice of countrified heaven. For the second year running, Fresh City Farms has teamed up with developer TAS and natural-cosmetics shop The Detox Market to transform the strip of dirt and asphalt into a temporary agrarian idyll. This year, the 500-square-foot space has been outfitted with raised vegetable beds, herb gardens and a quaint wooden fruit stand. Berryfresh Fruit Co. will be on site every day this summer selling whatever’s in season (currently: sour cherries, strawberries and golden raspberries). You don’t have to shop, though—locals are encouraged to grab a seat and soak up the good vibes.
