We are proud to report that our board of directors has increased to 7! Our new directors are Mike Leon, Prapti Giri, and Ronn Stevenson. You can “meet” each of them on our about page.
We also look forward to introducing you to our new market staff… soon!
We have 2 positions coming up for this market season. We are looking for community-minded folks with an appetite for local food & creative merrymaking to join our team as the Farmers’ Market Manager, and as the Market Assistant & Kids’ Activities Coordinator. It’s a fun way to spend the summer in the urban outdoors! Deadline to apply for both positions is April 8, 2014.
It’s not just this winter, and now March, that has been lion-like (the lambs are silent – likely eaten by the lions), but our organizational development has been lion-like, too: lazy and savage… The lazy bit is, well we kept a bit under the radar and quiet and have been catching up on all sorts of stuff: work, work and more work mainly. This January we’ve thrown ourselves savagely into the redevelopment of our board, and there is more of that yet to be done. Camille, our market blog volunteer editor has roused us back to (more) work, but of the fun kind, by publishing the first Withrow Market blog post of this year. We’re back in business in words, until we’re back in the park with the market. Hope you enjoy!
We are kicking the New Year off with two tasty, belly warming and mouth watering January hands-on cooking workshops:
- Ethiopian Vegetarian with Mesey Abateneh, Sat Jan 11, 11:30AM – 2PM
- Indian Vegetarian with Tiffinday‘s Seema Pabari, Sat Jan 18, 11:30AM – 2PM
Both workshops will happen in the Hurndale Kitchen of the Eastminster United Church (310 Danforth, at Jackman). Register for one workshop at a cost of $50 each, or save $10 by registering for both at $90! For workshop details, registration and payment information visit Eventbrite.
Cooking know-how is a gift that keeps on giving!

Join us for one last market day this Saturday Oct 26, & enjoy the company & fruits of our vendors’ labour. We’ll be switching gears, & we’ll keep the local food conversation going on our blog. Hope you’ll join us there. For a more interactive experience, follow us on twitter, or become a facebook friend. Thanks for being a farmers’ market supporter!
