Food Column: Elton Visits the Ontario Food Terminal

Our food contributor Sarah Elton took a trip to the Ontario Food Terminal to meet with Bruce Nicholas, the general manager. She told us about how this market has shaped the city we live in.

She also told us that the food terminal will open to the public for the second time ever, this Saturday, May 25th from 11 to 3 pm. There will be tours and a lunch served by the Toronto not-for-profit FoodShare. And you can even buy food there too!

Proceeds go to FoodShare.

Buy your tickets at the door or in advance.

Address: 165 the Queensway between Park Lawn Road and Stephen Drive in South Etobicoke
