The West Toronto Photography Group, in collaboration with FoodShare Toronto and the Artscape Weston Commons building Tenants association , are creating a safe, open-air market-style food market for the residents in Weston, Ontario, called “The Weston Artists Good Food Market.” This market will benefit all residents of Weston by giving a breath of fresh air to the community in tough times. It will also increase access to high-quality, culturally appropriate, affordable fruits and vegetables in the Weston neighbourhood where it might not otherwise be easily available/affordable.
We are offering some free booth space for local artists, entrepreneurs to vend in and community groups to share their work with the community. If you are interested in more information on booths this summer email Lisa@wtpg.ngo for details and an application form.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Good Food Markets have provided frontline support through neighbourhood access to high-quality foods, wellness checks, and pivoting to emergency food services to serve those most affected by the pandemic.
The Weston Artists Fresh Market extends far beyond a place to access fresh produce. We are a community square looking to bring the residents of Weston together by forming a community hub with fresh seasonal, local, and imported favourites, engaging activities, active conversation, information booths, and group celebrations.
Our market is located at Artscape Weston Common Square (34 John St, Toronto, ON M9N 0B2). Our market day will be Wednesdays throughout the summer May 25th -September 7th 2022 from 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
