Ryerson’s Farmer’s Market – Wednesday, August 21st, 11 am – 3 pm
Ryerson’s Farmers Market is back tomorrow for its second instalment of the summer, featuring artisanal food, fresh organic produce and craft items from local Ontario producers. The outdoor event is in partnership with AppleTree Markets, and will feature everything from fresh fruits and veggies to smoked meats and vegan Caribbean pastries. This year marks the third annual market event, making local food affordable and accessible to our campus.
We will be hosting a stall and selling our own fresh organic produce that we have grown right on campus. We will have a number of fresh vegetables for sale including eggplants, peppers, tomatoes, zucchinis, cucumbers, and garden greens.
Come find us tomorrow at our tent on Gould Street from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
If you would like to help us harvest or table the event, send us an email and let us know!

Rye’s HomeGrown (RHG) is made up of Ryerson students, faculty and staff who prioritize food sovereignty and responsible ecology. We employ a GROW to THROW (closed-loop food cycle) model and aim to create community by building innovative environments where traditionally siloeddisciplines intersect and interact. We invite them to gather in spaces around a common topic – food. RHG operates 8 edible gardens on campus using a variety of growing methods and techniques. We provide a source of healthy food for the university community and act as a focus for on-going discussion, experiment and development of a sustainable campus, and ultimately a sustainable city.
The Toronto Compost Leaders is a network of composting practitioners, facilitators and supporters based in the Greater Toronto Area. Facilitated by FoodShare, it is run in collaboration with dedicated individuals, many of whom are with community organizations and institutions. “Weavers of the soil food web”, the network provides capacity building to enable the production of on-site, quality composting and its integration in the urban food cycle – from seed to scrap.
