The meeting will be moderated by Lindsay (Swooping Hawk) Kretschmer, executive director of the Toronto Aboriginal Support Services Council.  

Please submit your questions in advance using this form: Questions for Candidates Questions may be themed/fused with other similar questions to allow for the most questions to be answered. All people whose questions are asked during the debate will be cited by the name submitted on the form.

The meeting will be in a webinar format. The link will be available at

Market Merch is here!

So excited that we now have East Lynn Market tees! Just like our produce, these tees are local and sweet! Artist Heather Corbin did our design, which we had screened at KT8 print shop in Scarborough. (The tee shirts themselves are from M&O knits, a vertically integrated, eco-minded company in Mexico.) Get yours while supplies last!

Tees are $25 (or $40 with a DECA membership!) with proceeds going to DECA’s work on the market and other community events. We will have them for sale in the DECA tent every week at the market, Thursdays 3-7 in East Lynn Park.

Market news for Aug 12

It’s been a busy summer at the East Lynn Farmers’ Market, and getting busier all the time! This week we welcome back Son-in-law Produce with their corn and potatoes, in addition to our usual great lineup of farmers and bakers.

We had a great response to our Case Reuse drop off last week and will continue it for the rest of the summer! You can drop your clean black plastic takeout containers off in the DECA tent. We are also taking crayons for recycling with our friends at Say it with Crayons!

A big thank you to all of our wonderful vendors, volunteers and customers for making Danforth East Thursdays so very fun.
