We are back in East Lynn Park on Thursdays, June-October, 3-7pm.
New this summer: The Kidpreneur Program!
The Kidpreneur Program gives kids the opportunity to gain experience being a vendor and selling their own goods at the East Lynn Farmers’ Market in East Lynn Park. The Kidpreneur Program is led by volunteer Clifton Corbin, an author and local financial literacy advocate. Clifton supervises on-site and assists the Kidpreneurs during their participation at the market.
Program participants have their own vendor booth to sell their products on select Thursday afternoons in July and August at the East Lynn Farmers’ Market.
We are asking participants to donate a portion of their profits to a charity of their choice. Many businesses do this to support their local community and issues they care about.
Every week we have a different musician busking at the market, representing a wide cross-section of musical genres. Musicians receive a small stipend courtesy of the Danforth Mosaic BIA. Questions about musician booking can be directed to email@example.com
Urban Growers’ Tent
The urban growers’ tent is a place for city farmers to sell their harvests without committing to a whole market season. We look forward to welcoming a lot of new faces to the market through this opportunity. Know a grower looking for an opportunity like this? Direct them to this link: Signup for Urban Growers’ Tent
We’re excited to have our kids’ tent back up this year! Watch for 4pm events from local businesses/organizations like Pegasus and the Toronto Public Library. Kids will also get to do weekly market crafts with our volunteers. Interested in hosting a kids activity/know someone who is? Here is our signup: Market Kids’ Activities Signup
We are always looking for volunteers to help with the setup, running, and take-down of the market. Here’s the signup: Volunteer Signup You can also email Rebecca at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
