The Market This Week
Last Thursday market-goers listened to stories by storyteller Dan Yashinsky. This week we’re continuing the theme with a visit from Christine Hiller, the children’s librarian at the Danforth/Coxwell library. Christine was at the market twice last year with stories and song and we’re excited to have her back for more. Look for her by the face-painting tent this Thursday at 4:30 p.m. (The East Lynn Farmers’ Market runs every Thursday from 3 – 7 p.m. at East Lynn Park, south of Danforth, west of Woodbine)
Don’t forget to fill out your ballot to win ‘Market Bucks’ at the DECA table. Each week we draw for $20 in Market Bucks to be used at the market from our wonderful partners at Farmers Markets Ontario.
PS – The East Lynn Park Farmers’ Market is on facebook, here.
Jazz In The Park
The Danforth Mosaic BIA hosts a weekly jazz performance every Wednesday from 6 – 9 p.m. (rain or shine). This week it is Autorickshaw, an “Indo- jazz-funk fusion ensemble. The band is nominated for a Juno award for world music album of the year. Bring your blanket or lawn chair to the Coxwell Parkette on the south side of the Danforth, just west of Coxwell.
Family Health Centre Update
As you may know the former funeral home at Aldridge and Danforth is being turned into a medical centre that will house the South East Toronto Family Health Team. This group of family doctors, residents and health care professionals will see about 12,000 patients. They expect to open in Spring 2011 and doctors there will be accepting new patients.
Some of the fencing is already up. The demolition will start inside the building disconnecting and removing the more delicate connections. Then they’ll bring in an excavator to tear down the building. Then they’ll shore up the building next door and dig a big hole. Then, they build. They’re hoping to be moving along with construction by the end of the summer.
