The Saturday Farmers Market

Eggs at the Farmers Market

Are you planning to head down to Evergren Brick Works for the Saturday Farmers Market this month? Here are some tips to help you make the most out of your visit:

  • Arrive early – If you’re one of the first to arrive, you’ll be guaranteed the best selection of everything including produce, dairy, eggs, and prepared goods. 
  • Be flexible – Farmers markets are great places to shop for local food that is in season. With a farmers market, we suggest you use your shopping list as a guide, but also be flexible to the selection of ingredients that are available.
  • Talk to your farmer - Do you have questions about what you’re buying? Ask farmers about how they grow their food, when something was picked or prepared, or how they care for their livestock.
  • Bring friends and family – The Saturday Farmers market is a social affair and all are welcome – including pups!

New Mural in the Children's Garden

Mural in the Children's Garden

This mural entitled "Swamp Walk" by Toronto-based artist Sarah Davidson​ weaves together timeless and familiar features of Evergreen Brick Works’s local ecosystem and ecology.
 
Here, the milk snake meanders under the wing of a swallowtail butterfly as the eyes of the grey tree frog observe the snapping turtle—all while remaining somewhat obscured in their tangled web of natural forms. Their interconnectedness makes a vital and complex reference to nature’s intricate network and prompts the question: who’s seeing who, and how?  
 
Davidson works primarily between drawing and painting, and often borrows directly from nature through a queer ecological lens.
