About the Market

The Met Farmers' Market takes place every Sunday in the vibrant parklands surrounding Met at Queen St. E. and Church St. in downtown Toronto. An initiative by Metropolitan United Church and supported by Greenbelt Markets, Met is looking beyond a conventional farmers' market and pursuing a "food-hub"-style market that focuses on contributing to an accessible community food space, working with local service providers and engaging other neighbourhood food support programs.

Hello, my name is Lala, I’m a third generation Ghanaian farmer, first generation Canadian. My business is inspired by my African heritage with a splash of western practices, a perfect blend. What makes me special isn’t just my love of community and growing food but also my desire to create change in a meaningful way, one veggie at a time.

Boochin'

Our Founder and Chief Brewing Officer's journey started as a labour of love for her family. She began brewing at home to give them a healthier alternative to high sugar juices and soda pop. Needless to say, the Jun Kombucha was a huge hit with everyone. Then, after 15 years working corporately, an acquisition, and eventual layoff, she decided to venture out on her own and Boochin' was born!

  • Products: Kombucha

Fresh Market Farm & Fresh Market Flowers

For the Love of Sustainable Flowers.
Our 25 acre farm is a labour of love for our family. Mario and Susan chose to pursue a slower, simpler life for their family and three kids and moved to the farm in 2013.

One thing is for sure on our farm - life is never dull.

Fred's Bread

In 1994, in our tiny apartment kitchen, Andrea combined organic wheat flour and water with organic grapes to "start" the process of fermentation known as "sourdough". Unlike commercial yeast, "sourdough starter" contains active wild yeasts that slow down the entire process of bread making and give our bread its unique characteristics. Our dough is mixed gently, allowed to age and ripen at lower temperatures, over longer periods of time than most bread. This extra time and care combine to ensure the distinctive quality of each Fred's Bread loaf - a crisp crust, a moist open crumb with great depth of flavour that stands on its own and tastes of the grain it was made from.

  • Products: Batards, brioche, cheesy bread, baguettes

We want to gel our lived experiences from the past with the present in our culinary practices for a sustainable future.
