This week at the Market – Summer safety and free massages

Thank you to guest blogger Jen Rowe for joining the market social media team and helping to keep us all updated on market happenings this week: 

Thank you to everyone who came out to last week’s Grand Opening Celebration of the East Lynn Park Farmers’ Market.

We had perfect weather in an otherwise rainy week and the market was bustling! A special thank you to the volunteers and our sponsors: Toronto Kia, Toronto Honda and Plank Road Market.

You all made the event a big success and we couldn’t do it without you!

At this week’s Market, come by and say hello to the fabulous farmers who will have local produce and meat for sale and this week’s wineries, Pilliteri Estates and Château Des Charmes. While you’re exploring, we have some other great activities planned to round out your Market experience:

Children’s activity:

Beth Yarzab of Career Fit Mom  will have fitness games and drills for your little ones to participate in from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Being active with your kids is a great way to role model the “everyday fitness” lifestyle so jump on in and have fun doing obstacle courses, agility/coordination challenges and role playing activities.

Community Booth:

Toronto East General Hospital Emergency Room nurses will be on hand with information on summer safety, including:

  • Tick and Lyme Disease;
  • Bike and Helmet Safety;
  • Beat the Heat;
  • Pool Safety;
  • Car Seat Safety; and
  • List of doctors accepting new patients.

Wellness Booth:

As you may know, Elevated Health Associates recently opened their doors 1776 Danforth Ave. Toni Sharman, RMT and Osteopath will be on hand to provide information on the clinic and the services they provide along with free 10 minute chair massages.

See you Thursday!
