2020 Market in review

What a whirlwind 4 months it’s been! – Starting in June, we took a market that couldn’t happen in the park and found creative solutions to get the food from our farmers to our neighbours all summer long! It was a lot of logistics, troubleshooting, laughter and a tonne of fun.

Thank you to Yuri Fraser, our Farmers’ Market Ontario market manager, for working on the ground and behind the scenes to manage the huge task of vendor logistics.

Thank you Rebecca Green for finding our market a home and for your fearless leadership of our DECA volunteer crew.

Thank you to the team of DECA volunteers of all ages who emptied trucks, sorted orders and delivered each week.

Thank you to The Danforth Mennonite Church for being a temporary home to our weekly market sorting.

And finally, thank you to all our faithful, weekly customers. You braved the wacky online ordering process to not only support our farmers each week, but raise much needed funds to help our local seniors through The Neighbourhood Group.
