It has transformed into a “vibrant animated food space and cultural food hub that forms a collective platform for sharing food and exchanging food culture with the community,” according to Toronto City Councilor Josh Matlow.

Items available to purchase include imported food from the Caribbean and Africa, and local food made by artisans, like freshly baked bread, desserts, juices, and sauces.

“We know our market will serve as a Sunday weekly hotspot that will animate and add a new sense of value to this part of the city,” said the market’s organizers on their website.

The event runs until October 3, every Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm.
