There are many different ways to get to the Brick Works. We suggest using sustainable forms of transportation, like biking, walking or public transportation, when you can. The Evergreen Shuttle Bus departs every 30 to 45 minutes from Chester Station. If you’re coming by car, there’s also a limited amount of paid parking on site.
Many areas of the Brick Works have different hours of operation. Please check the hours for the section of the site you’ll be visiting ahead of time.
Our friendly Evergreen staff will be at the Welcome Centre during the below hours to welcome you to the Brick Works and answer any questions that you might have.
Saturdays from 9am – 1pm
The ultimate farmers market (Toronto’s largest), with the widest offering of local and seasonal food you’ll find in the city.

December 10 and 17 from 11am – 5pm
The Winter Market is the place in Toronto to experience joy and connection this season.
Everybody should have the opportunity to connect with nature, history and community. Ensuring accessibility means welcoming people of all abilities to explore the site and engage in meaningful experiences.
Our Shuttle Bus is equipped with a wheelchair lift and tie-down. The bus can also accommodate one stroller or large assistive device per trip.
Service animals are allowed in areas of Evergreen Brick Works that are open to the public, including the Saturday Farmers Market and the Shuttle Bus.
When it is not readily apparent that the animal is a service animal, staff or volunteers may ask for a document confirming the need for the service animal.
Seating is provided throughout the site at bistro tables, benches and picnic tables. In the Young Centre and the Centre for Green Cities building, accessibility features include an elevator, accessible single-stall washrooms, automated door openers, and Braille signage in the elevators and conference centre. The accessible washroom is located on the ground floor, with accessible stalls located in the washrooms on each of the five floors.
While the site and park area are accessible for most people, there are some bumps, tracks and pebbles at this old brick factory.
We have eight paid parking spots reserved for vehicles with Accessible Parking Permits.
We strive to make our programs and events as barrier-free as possible. Visitors and participants may use their own assistive devices. A support person accompanying a visitor with disabilities is allowed to stay with the visitor at all times, and is provided with free admission to Evergreen events (a fee may apply if a meal option is chosen).
How are we doing? We welcome suggestions on improving access for all our events and programs.
Contact us by phone (416-596-7670), by email or talk to us in person at the Welcome Desk. All documents, including our Accessible Customer Service policy, training records and written feedback process, are available upon request.
