Market this week: greener and greater!

It’s been a pretty bang-up season so far this year — thank you for coming out and enjoying local food and local company!

This week is about living a little greener — you can get your bike tuned up with our friends at 32 Spokes, visit with the Clean Air Alliance and talk about their local initiatives, and meet the Green Neighbours Network, a non-profit organization that connects and collaborates with neighbourhood green groups and supports initiatives for sustainability and climate action. They are promoting their research project Caterpillars Count, which investigates insect populations and biodiversity in the Beaches-East York riding. They’ll have an educational kids activity that emphasizes the importance of insects, resources for adults on recognizing invasive species in the garden, and information on how native species and pollinators contribute to a healthy ecosystem. Find them @gnntoronto

In the kids tent, we will have Create Art Studio running an activity for the kids, and DECA volunteers doing glitter tattoos.

Our Local Business Popup Vendors this week are One Last Thing and Farmer’s Sodas. Make sure to come by for a great snack and a hand-crafted bevvie!

Our Rotating Vendors this week are Bata Maple Syrup and Just Shut up and Try It fermentations. Our brewery is Great Lakes Brewery.

Our Kidpreneur tent will start July 11 — stay tuned for that lineup!
