Fresh From The Market

Withrow Park Farmers’ Market – Saturday, September 20th, 2014

Withrow Park, Toronto, Canada

Hello Friends,

We have teamed up with the Friends of Withrow Park to host a Stone Soup Campfire. Visit the market this Saturday, and check out the fresh local produce. Buy an organic veggie from one of our farmers and bring it to the campfire to add to your community soup. Enjoy a bowl of hot soup while listening to the original story as told by our resident story teller, Pepper.

Thank you to our community in Riverdale, our vendors and volunteers, and all our market supporters for a great market season!

Join us this Saturday for Stone Soup, and a lot more.

John Zeus,  market manager

Special Guest

Hey Riverdale, welcome to 18Blocks — the neighbourhood’s free online noticeboard, where residents can talk, trade and congregate to improve their community. After all, a neighbourhood in touch is a community in tune! 18Blocks was created with the desire to build stronger, better connected communities and tighter knit neighbourhoods, so that people who live near each other can discover they share more than a postal code. Meet us at the Withrow Park Farmer’s Market on September 20, 27, and October 1.
