Thank you to all patrons of the market! We give thanks to all farmer and vendors for a great 10th season. It was quite incredible, after the past two seasons where we had rain almost every Tuesday,this year not one rain day. Fantastic for market days. Though, the downside was Ontario had the worst drought in 30 years. Which effected all farmers in negative ways. This year will go down as a tough one for farmers. Most managed, but no farmer likes to irrigate or have their wells or ponds run low. Here's looking forward and hoping for a stellar growing season in 2017 to make up for it.
Have a great winter everyone, eat well, stay warm. Updated market information, on this site and our dedicated site, tbfm.ca will come in the spring. Market work for management is part time seasonal. Now that it is officially 'off season, email responses will not be immediate. Apologizes in advance. Thank you.
Congrats our 2016 basket draw winners! Moreen Murray (Oct) Lois Schklar (Sept) and Russell Winklaar (Aug).
This brings the 2016 season to a close. Thank you to everyone, vendors, volunteers, Nadege and County General. It's been a good 10 years.

Oh, the vegy's are growing and slowly but surely the tables will be laden with locally grown goodies. We will always be there on Tuesdays from 3-7pm, Dundas West &n Shaw Sts. Rain or Shine. There's also meat, baked goods, wild goods, kombucha, mushrooms, fish, bread, popsicles, whole grain crackers, fish roti/buns, fresh pasta amongst others.
Starting this season, being our 10th and all...we will further our commitment to the environment, are implementing a 'leave a bag, take a bag' program for FREE. Which means, any of your extra, clean re-useable shopping bags you have a home (we know you have some ;-), bring them to market for other to use. If you forget your bag on time, help yourself to a bag. Return it, keep using it. No worries. Please only donate CLEAN bags, especially free of pet hairs re: people with allergens. Those well made paper shopping bag will be accepted too. Thank you.
The vendor line us at capacity for the 2016 season. Vendor inquiries will have limited response.

Would you like to help sustain the market? It's easy, come volunteer!
If you are interested in helping out, getting to know farmers/vendors, appreciate a little great urban-outdoors and not afraid of a little physical work, then this is for you. It's a rewarding experience and our vendors (farming is back breaking work) truly appreciate the hand.
Volunteers are mainly needed during market season, shifts are....
12:30 to 1:30pm - early set up
2pm to 3:30pm - vendor set up
6:30 to 7:45pm - wrap/clean up for vendors and organizational
You can sign up for any length of time during the season. Some volunteers do the entire season, some do a few months or take a break and come back in the fall. We understand unforeseen events that may cause volunteers to cancel. No worries, just give us notification and/or coordinate your schedule with our schedule. Easy peasy!
We sometimes need volunteers outside of market season for various tasks (flyer/lawn sign distrubution, painting, handy work, etc.) The market really is a collaborative effort and many of our local community members have made some awesome contributions over the years. And we are so grateful for their generousity - you'all know who I'm talking to!
Time flies when you're having fun. Hard to believe that 2016 will be our 10th year going. Wow. Veronica did a redux of our promo postcard to reflect this. Sweet and simple. Come May, look for them in your mailbox in the neighbourhood and at select shops.
