DECA is so excited to announce the return of the East Lynn Market this Thursday, June 2! We have a number of farmers and prepared food vendors committed to being there this week (see full list below), and more as the growing season progresses. You can find us back on the concrete path through East Lynn. Our first week will feature live music, garden advice, bike repairs, and kids’ activities.
Our live music this week features a very special guest. We are thrilled to welcome back Dirty Dishes alum Alison Porter as one part of the duo The Rosy Ramblers, a Leslieville mother/daughter fiddle duo composed of Porter (Mom) and Hazel Evans (daughter). They play traditional fiddle music, and classical pieces in 2 part harmony. Local songstress and CBC darling Nancy White called their act “magical”.
We will also have a kids’ activity at 4pm, with the delightful Em! She will do a circle time for kids 0-6y+ featuring sing alongs and readings of fun inclusive stories! Circle Times with Em is a program for children and their parents/caregivers in East Toronto (as well as performing at local children’s events and birthdays around the city.) See her on instagram @emilia_bender and register for her other classes here:
