Farmers Market closed, park permits cancelled for now

The COVID-19 pandemic has led the City to cancel all permits for parks and City buildings including the Sorauren Fieldhouse as a public health precaution. As such, the Sorauren Farmers Market has announced it will be closed starting March 16 until at least April 5.

The park itself is open and is a great place to enjoy the outdoors while practicing appropriate social distancing. Some of these outdoor games from Wired magazine may do the trick.

We’ll post any updates concerning the park and park programs as we get them. Also follow @SoraurenPark on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Information on affected City services is continually updated on the City of Toronto website.
