The Ward 13 Farmers' Market Initiative is a group of local residents who are interested in bringing a Farmers' Market to Ward 13. With guidance from a community animator from LiveGreen Toronto, the group has been meeting regularly to develop and implement a strategy to have a market in the area as soon as possible. Committees include Market Models, Governance, Community Outreach, Location, Permits & Logistics. If you are interested on joining our efforts, please contact Whitney Crooks at 647-409-9448 or firstname.lastname@example.org or email us at email@example.com.
An overview and survey info from Chris a member of the initiative
An initiative that is working on bringing a farmers'
market to Ward 13 of Toronto. We believe that farmers’ markets work best
when they’re situated close to those who shop there. Local and fresh
produce, farmed in Ontario should be available to everyone without having
to make a lengthy journey outside of their own neighbourhood.
We’re currently in the planning stages of the initiative and need
community input into what kind of farmers’ market they would like to have
in their neighbourhood. I encourage you to fill out the survey below and
forward this email to your constituents. We’re trying to reach as many
people as possible and groups like yours are the perfect channel for
spreading the word locally.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all.
It's farmers market season again! Wouldn't you love to shop at a farmers
market in your own neighborhood? The Ward 13 Farmers Market Initiative is
working on bringing that vision to reality.
Please take a few minutes and share your thoughts with us by taking our
short survey. Please go to our website at www.ward13market.com or click on
