The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

It's off to Market we Go!

As the growing season progresses it's fun to see the changing produce at the market.  I practically have a rash from eating loads of strawberries at this point.  We know that we have mentioned a few of our favourites in this space before, but indulge us as we give Evergreen just one more plug.  Going to Evergreen is an outing as much as a shopping experience.  Try to budget some extra time to explore the trails and enjoy the ambiance with a fresh cup of coffee.  This weekend is National Aboriginal History Month Celebration (Saturday, June 23, 2012, 8am–1pm).  Join us for a drumming dance and a smudge ceremony First Nations culture is celebrated at EBW!
And not sure if you have gleaned that we are Toronto 'westenders' yet, but if not, one of our favourite markets happens on a Monday - The Sorauren Farmers Market.  This market (from 3 pm - 7 pm) is a family affair.  Great food and always something to do.  They have an upcoming Solar Cooking Workshop at the market on Monday June 25th, put on by Fourth Pig Worker Co-op!  All are welcome, and kids are encouraged to attend with adult supervision, drop-in from 1pm-5pm at the park.  Free, but bring a cardboard box if you can (20" square is a good size), which will make 2 ovens.  Tips and recipes included!  And get some summer reading - $2 Book sale - also next monday on June 25th at the market!  Bring your books to donate that day, and come away with some fresh finds!
