Do you sometimes wish we had something like the St. Lawrence market in our neighbourhood? Me too. That’s why I’ve been working on creating a City owned – but privately operated – year round market in the new development that’s been approved for 5200 Yonge Street (opposite Parkview Avenue). When the project is completed, we’ll have our own local butcher, baker, cheese shop, green grocer and other specialty food shops. Eventually a similar area will be created on a development just to the north with a City owned gathering space in between the two market areas.
