The tour will begin at St. Lawrence Market, which has hosted the Saturday Farmers’ Market every week since 1803. Participants will then learn about Building Roots’ Moss Park Market, where customers can enjoy a welcoming public space and purchase fresh produce via a “pay what you can” model. The tour will then head to Building Roots’ volunteer-powered urban farm at Ashbridge Estate, which features the Ojibiikaan Indigenous Garden. Next is a visit to Withrow Farmers Market, which has successfully piloted programs including clothing swaps, zero-waste coffee cups, and reusable food containers. Attendees will then head to Thorncliffe Park Community Market. Commonly known as “the Bazaar,” this women-led initiative played a key role in revitalizing the park where it operates, establishing a container that houses the Park Cafe, and provides income to participating women year- round.
