The Market runs year-round each Monday from 3-7pm
Sorauren Farmers’ Market has been a welcoming hub providing wholesome fresh food and community connection since 2008. We provide support to local sustainable farmers and producers, and work opportunities for those marginalized from the labour market. Generating relationships and dialogue around gardening, sustainable farming and healthy food and implementing measures to lessen the Market’s environmental impact are core aims.
We are grateful to be located within Sorauren Park which is a beautiful greenspace managed by the City of Toronto and animated by community group, Friends of Sorauren Park. Along with the Farmers’ Market, you will find an ice skating rink, dog walking park, community pizza oven, children’s soccer and baseball programmes and even movie nights and an annual pumpkin parade!
In the summertime the Market inhabits the square, in the wintertime we move into the cozy Field House.
