ABOUT THE LESLIEVILLE FARMERS’ MARKET AT THE REDWOOD THEATRE
In the winter of 2018 Maria Karam, the new owner of the Redwood Theatre, approached the Leslieville Farmers’ Market with an offer to host the market at theatre. Having just saved the building from becoming a Rexall Pharmacy (read more on that here), Maria and her partner Robert Indrigo had a incredible vision of turning the theatre into not only a performance space, but a hub for local not-for-profits and community organizations. After our initial heart palpitations, cold-sweats and fevered planning meetings (“our market? inside?!”) we were honoured to enter into a partnership with the new Redwood Theatre. Based on the belief in the transformative power of food to build community, the urgent need to support a local food system and create a new space for our entire community to gather on Sundays and just be together.

This Sunday Oct 14: All Candidate Neighbourhood Markets Tour
While we pride ourselves on our market being a respite from the turbulence of modern life, our existence unfortunately largely rests at the hands of our local Councillor and their support. So, with that in mind, let’s give a big, warm LFM welcome as we tour Ward 14 and Ward 19 Councillor candidates around the market and show off our amazing community.
