What a Year!


Hard to believe we’re already at the last market of the year – and what a market year it’s been! But first off, a BIG thank you, to all of our wonderful Dufferin Grove community, who, despite the “challenging” weather on Thursday, still came to the market last week. You rock! ????

Thanks to you, the (first) holiday craft market was a success! Yes – it was definitely smaller than initially planned, with some vendors not being able to attend due to weather. But all in all, beautiful things, and beautiful people.

And once again, a reminder of our location: 651 Dufferin St, at St Anne’s church. Come to the north-facing glass doors, and head downstairs. And yes, it can be a bit of a puzzle sometimes, with the numerous entrances around the building – but once you find us, we’ll make it worth your while! 

And remember folks, we’ll have more “crafty things” this week as well! A great opportunity to complete those last-minute wish lists.

And hey, why not sport a “festive face” while you shop? Isabel, our talented face-painter, taught me that face painting can be, and is – for all ages! Thanks Isabel, what fun!

But of course, the market’s “main attraction”, being wonderful organic food, was still well in abundance – and will be again, this week!


And don’t forget to pick up one of these! Our market bags are great for putting all your goodies in as you shop. And only $20!


And although we’re hoping our market is the centre of your week, we are aware that winter solstice is also happening this week. So regardless of how you feel about the official start of winter, it is still nice to look forward to longer hours of daylight – count me in!


And as for the market’s future, (come the new year), please stay tuned. We’re hoping to find a way to keep things going.

And just a heads up, with next week being Christmas day, there will be no newsletter on December 25th – but we’ll catch up with you, as you usher in 2023!

Happy holidays, and hope to see you at the market!
