That’s a wrap for this year’s East Lynn Park Farmers’ Market

What a whirlwind 4 months it’s been! – Starting in June, taking a market that couldn’t happen in the park and finding creative solutions to get the food from our farmers to our neighbors 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.

Great news for fans of Oy’s Joys and their delicious baked goods! Even though East Lynn Park Farmers’ Market is done for the season, Oy’s Joys’ shop is still open weekly from Friday to Tuesday on Open Food Network until Oct 15th – AND one of our DEDICATED market volunteers has volunteered her front porch for a Thursday 12-2pm pick up!
Simply select “MMs Porch” from the drop down menu when you place your order and then pick up your order from 34 Keystone the following Thursday between 12-2pm.
Here are just a few of the people who made it all happen this year. (Thanks also to Great Lakes Brewery for supplying beverages for our socially distanced wrap party)
