Market This Week
This Thursday is the penultimate East Lynn Park Farmers’ Market so you won’t want to miss it. (Doesn’t penultimate sound so much better than second-last?) Come and stock up on all of your favourite fresh, locally grown/made food and support the amazing farmers that make our market possible.
We’re happy to welcome Riverdale Hub/Riverdale Immigrant Women’s Centre, with information about their Women in the Garden program. It is a year-round program that aims to improve the physical and social well-being of newcomer women in the neighborhood though gardening workshops and yoga. https://www.riverdalehub.ca/
The crew of volunteer facepainters will be there, ready to make all your kids’ dreams come true.
Tawes Winery will be sampling and selling everything you need for Thanksgiving dinner/weekend with your family. (Read whatever meaning into that you need to, friends)
Last summer, Tak Bui, a Toronto artist and longtime friend of DECA, set out to travel to Newfoundland. These pen & ink drawings are the result of his road trip to the Rock, where he often stopped to draw the beautiful landscape and its inhabitants. Please drop by the DECA tent to view some of these original works.
A complete show of these drawings will be displayed at “The Newfoundlander” 472 Danforth Road (at Birchmount) for one day only from 1:00-5:00pm on December 16th. For more info email Tak here or visit his website.
You may have heard that there’s an election happening. Next week on October 11 at the last market of the year, DECA has invited the City Councillor candidates for Ward 19 (east of Coxwell) to come to the market for a meet-and-greet. We’ve also invited the English School Board Trustee candidates for Ward 16 (this ward).
As you buy the last of the market goods for the season, you can chat up the candidates about your burning municipal issues. Or just tell them you think they’re awesome for putting themselves out there (which they are).
A few days after the last market, DECA has organized a Ward 16 Trustee candidates meeting on October 15 at 7:30pm (one week from Monday). Mark your calendars! If you have a question you want to pose, send it by email.
The East Lynn Farmers’ Market runs every Thursday from 3-7:00 p.m. between June 7 – October 11 at East Lynn Park, located on the south side of Danforth Ave, just west of Woodbine Ave. Stay up to date by visiting the East Lynn Market Facebook page or by following us on Twitter.
