At the market this week, only the best in local fruits, vegetables, breads, cheeses, meats, pies, muffins and nice people.  And face painting.

Danforth East Arts Fair

The fabulous Danforth East Arts Fair is a few short weeks away and we could really use just a teensy weensy little bit of help.  We could use some people to help exhibitors to load and unload on Saturday Sep 18th from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and on Sunday Sep 19th from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.  We could also use some help on litter patrol and changing garbage bags during the show.  (I know it’s not sexy, but art isn’t always glamorous – and it’s oh oh oh so important.)

BIA Dining Fest

The Danforth Mosaic Business Improvement Association is launching its first annual three-week food festival called Mosaic does… Dine around the Danforth. September 10th-30th over 65 restaurants will participate in this street event by featuring entertainment and significant discounts including prix fixe menus. Savour the best of Moroccan, Ethiopian, Greek, Italian, Hakka, Mexican, Thai and Tunisian cuisine, along with Sushi Bars, traditional diners and much more from around the world at excellent prices!

Local jazz bars and some restaurants and clubs will be offering a variety of live entertainment.  Cafes and restaurants will be showcasing family entertainment for all ages. The Dine Around the Mosaic Barbershop Quartet will be awarding random diners with gifts such as complimentary meals and Mosaic Bucks, which diners can redeem at participating Mosaic stores!

The Mosaic does… Dine around the Danforth stretches from Jones Avenue to Westlake (two blocks east of Woodbine) along Danforth Avenue.

  1. Speaking of dining, my husband chatted last week with the owners of our neighbourhood’s *next* new bakery/cafe: Caketown. It’s on the Danforth, south side, right beside Better Bulk.

    They told him they plan to open this weekend. The ‘cakes’ the name refers to are British style tea cakes and scones etc. and they’ll also have espresso and cappucino.
