Get yer country on… Country Fair comes to Sorauren Sept. 1

countryfair-forweb-600x777

Labour Day Sept. 1 features a special version of the Sorauren Farmers’ Market: the Country Fair, with live farm animals, old-timey kids’ games, Blue Ribbon competitions, strange vegetables, and great food and live music. The market runs from 3 to 7 p.m.

Make sure to end your long weekend with a visit to the Sorauren Farmers’ Market and the new Sorauren Town Square. Check out the new trees and watch the Adopt-A-Tree waterers in action. Every new tree in the square is now labelled with species and adopters’ names. Special thanks to Pollocks Home Hardware on Roncy for the hoses and Addison Inc. plumbing on Wabash Avenue for help with the tree labels. Aren’t our local businesses awesome?!

The Sorauren Farmers’ Market is produced by the West End Food Co-op and made possible by the Green Belt Farmers’ Market Network.

Liking the new Town Square but wish it had benches? Donate to the Phase 2 Town Square fundraising campaign! We’ll be installing benches, a bake oven, more bike rings, and an iconic trellis with your support. Donations of $100 or more will be recognized on the new Phase 2 Donor Wall and a permanent donor wall to be erected once the trellis is built. Makes a great gift!

All donations over $10 receive a tax receipt thanks to our collaboration with the charitable Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation.
