We’ve got a new pop up vendor this week at the market: TC ‘s Tibetan MoMos.
In case you aren’t familiar with momos, they are Tibetan dumplings and they are delicious! TC prioritize local ingredients and use organic flour for their dumpling wrappers.
They will be bringing their meals packed & ready to take home for you to eat cold or warm up.
Toronto West Rotary COVID-19 fundraising
You may have noticed the Toronto West Rotary set up near the market entrance. They are collecting empty beer cans, and beer, wine and liquor bottles. 100 percent of the proceeds is going toward a COVID-19 project that is supplying masks, hand-sanitizers and gloves to women’s shelters, food banks and other community organizations.
So please bring your returnable empties to the market!

What else can you do at Montgomery’s Inn right now?
As part of HistoricTO, Montgomery’s Inn is offering time-ticketed walking tours Wednesdays through Sundays. Tours are sixty minutes in length. Admission is pay-what-you-can (PWYC) with a suggested donation of $10. The tour will cover the Montgomery’s farm, the story of Joshua Glover (an escaped enslaved person who worked at the Inn for decades), Indigenous history, as well as the story of the Chinese market gardeners (which inspired us to start the Farmers Market in the first place!)
The tour, which does not include the grounds or the interior of Montgomery’s Inn, includes brief strolls (some on an incline) to approximately five points between Montgomery’s Inn and Mimico Creek, along with periods of standing (about 5 minutes each) and one exterior stair case.
Other City of Toronto History Museums are also offering walking tours. Learn more here.
To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, HistoricTO guidelines include lower ratios and capacity, physical distancing, and mandatory health screening. The interior of the building will remain closed to the public until September.
