This week I made my way across town to the Kensington Market. While we missed the final farmer's market of the season there was still much to check out. Thrift stores galore, vegetarian eateries, and one little car that renewed my hope for happy food in Toronto:
There were actual edibles planted here - kale, an abundance of herbs, lavender, fennel, and the vestiges of recently deceased tomato plants.
There is happy food here. And it's being grown in unique and clever ways. I will find it.
Last week we had some great linker-uppers! Highlights include:
