Evergreen MarketEvergreen Market

Evergreen Brick Works a community environmental centre was transformed from a collection of deteriorating heritage buildings into a global showcase for green design and urban sustainability. It was once known as the Don Valley Brick Works - a former quarry and industrial site located in the Don River Valley. The Don Valley Brickworks worked for almost 100 years and helped build some of Toronto's best known landmarks, such as Casa Loma, Osgoode Hall or the Ontario Legislature.

Evergreen, a Canadian non-profit organization, took over the Don Valley Brickworks in 1997 and transformed it itno a cultural centre, offering a variety of programs combining ecology, design, technology and art.

Every Saturday, starting from May 3 and ending on November 1, Evergreen Brick Works fills with best local produce from local vendors and farmers. The idea is to engage local food consumers and food producers, promote organic and GMO-free foods and celebrate the diversity of food traditions, which Toronto is blessed with. We've visited the market recently so here's a short photo essay of what you can find there every Saturday.
