It’s about time I posted something a little bit more local and little bit more uplifting. I bring you, the Apple Tree Market at Eglinton Park in Midtown Toronto. If you’re like me, you want to support local and organic foods. And if you’re like me, you question the large corporations who claim to offer organics. At the Apple Tree though, there are no questions, just local farmers, bringing their delicious delights to us city folk. Here you can chat to the people who actually produce the food…you know, the ones who work in the field for long hours trying to keep afloat of a increasingly corporate food world. You can take the nickels and dimes out of your pocket and place your money directly into the hands of those who grow the food. I must say, it is a wonderful feeling to have this opportunity available in the heart (almost) of the city.

The market takes place Thursdays from 3pm to 7pm. And if you can’t make it during this time, Culinarium, a local food store on Mount Pleasant Road carries products from most of the Apple Tree vendors every day of the week.
