Welcome to DECA!

Welcome to DECA!

Thank you to our members who attended our Annual General Meeting on May 1, 2023. Check our About Us page for your 2023 Board and minutes from the meeting.

May and June are busy times for DECA folks as we gear up for the East Lynn Farmers’ Market (starting Thursday, June 1) and the Danforth East Yard Sale (Saturday, June 10). 

Yard Sale Volunteers Wanted!

This year, we are adding a multi-seller sale and a clothing/small appliance drive to benefit Kennedy House Youth Shelter and New Circles. We’ll need people to help with set up and sorting (and even delivering donations). You can sign up now or wait to learn more at the dinner.

Farmers’ Market Volunteers

The market runs every Thursday 3-7, June 1 to October 12. This year we are adding a local business pop-up booth, glitter tattoos for the kids, and all kinds of community and kid activities. If you or your teen are interested, you can sign up now or wait to learn more at the dinner.

The Danforth East Community Association (DECA) is a group of neighbours that started working together in 2007 to make our community more vibrant and walkable. We’ve made big changes to our little pocket, starting with our East Lynn Park Farmers’ Market, giving facelifts to a number of Danforth stores and bringing the Danforth East Community Arts Fair to the community. We call ourselves a “community” association rather than a “resident” association because we feel it is important to include residents, businesses, schools, places of worship, and other organizations in the conversations we have about how to make our home on Toronto better for all of its inhabitants.

*Our catchment is between Monarch Park and Main, the railway tracks and Mortimer/Lumsden.
