To Market, To Market
This is the second year for a farmer's market at Ryerson University. It is small but in its own way quite appealing. Part of the charm is that despite its proximity to the bustling corner of Yonge and Dundas, its location on Gould Street, amongst gardens and by a pool-a skating rink in the winter--, seems a world away.
Andrews Scenic Acres, a go-to vendor for fruit had gooseberries, red, black and white currants, rhubarb, and some very good strawberries. Best of all they had those seedy delights, black raspberries. Another familiar producer, Svetec Farms, was there with meat from grassfed livestock plus some produce. Cheesemakers, Primeridge Pure were also at Ryerson. The Van Harts, veterans of Liberty Village and Borden Street, had their usual rainbow selection of tomatoes.
