Farmers' mrkt at Royal Bank Plaza
Back For Another Year: FARMERS' MRKT at Royal Bank Plaza
Toronto Market Co. is excited to bring another exciting Farmer’s MRKT to the centre of the downtown core. At Farmers' MRKT patrons can taste, shop and intermingle while enjoying the sights and smells of freshly baked breads and pastries, locally grown produce and cheeses, responsibly farmed meats, artisanal jams & preserves, VQA wines, cold pressed juices, and other tasty treats. The MRKT is curated with an emphasis on local, gourmet, and high quality products
Located on Royal Bank Plaza's Podium at the corner of Bay and Wellington, the MRKT will be an exciting mix of farmers, artisans, chefs, entrepreneurs, bakers, and makers showcasing their products to the building's tenants, Toronto residents, downtown dwellers, and visitors to the city. The MRKT is surrounded by Canada’s largest towers and will juxtapose the most densely populated urban area of the country with a farmers’ market spirit.
