Sosnicki Organics
I've been buying produce from Ben almost weekly for the past few years at Dufferin Groves farmers' market. He brings Cabbage and potatos into the city all year round and an ever expanding variety of other produce in the summer from his family run farm in norfolk county. What I believe is a testament to the quality of their produce is the shelf life I experience with their food. Their vegtables just seem to stay fresh in the fridge longer than when I've bought the same item... [Read More]

Akiwenzie's Fish brings Toronto some of the best and probably the freshest wild fish one can find in the city. It's a small family run business that sustainably fishes lake trout and white fish in the deep waters of Georgian Bay. Andrew and his wife Natasha give a nice overview of what they do in the beginning of this video.

Dufferin Grove Park Farmers' Market
Every Thursday from 3-7 all year round Dufferin Grove park hosts their famous farmers' markets. The park makes it's own fresh wood-oven baked bread and serves delicious 2.50$ chili in addition to welcoming in numerous famers from the GTA. This market is where I discovered how good food should taste and has been one of my important weekly rituals since 2002. Aside from being a great place to pick up fresh, organic, local ingredients, it's a wonderful place go for a ... [Read More]
 
Not Far From The Tree
Not far from the tree connects homeowners with fruit trees with groups of volunteers willing to pick them. The fruit then gets dividies up 1/3 each to the home owner, the volunteers and shelters/foodbanks/community kitchens. Turns out there is a suprising amount of food growing in the city. In 2010 they picked 19,695 pounds of fruit and the project has expanded to more neighbourhoods since then. The idea has proven to be super popular and picks often fill up in a wink ... [Read More]

Friday Night Suppers | Friends of Dufferin Grove Park
Dufferin grove park hosts community dinners throughout the year(except October and November) every Friday from 6-7:30. In the summer food is served outside and people dine at the many picnic tables around the ovens or lounge out on blankets under the trees. In winter they move inside the club house beside the skating rink. In the summer it is probably best to try and get there early as it's a popular event and they often run out of food before 7:30. I enjoy the event for it... [Read More]
 
The Bovine | Freedom of Choice for Raw Milk Drinkers
Michael Schmidt cares for cows and brings Torontonians their raw milk. Unfortunately the waiting list is extraordinarily long and I have no hope of tasting his milk. Having seen Michael Schmidt speak at the release of 'milk war' I'm on the verge of declaring him a national hero. He's a man of principal who's been fighting on behalf of all Canadians to change archaic laws and give people greater freedom in how they nourish themselves. Thanks Michael. Also see th... [Read More]
