Toronto Flower Market, Toronto, ON

Today is the first day of the seasonal Toronto Flower Market.  It's held from 10am to 3pm on the northeast corner  (Queen Street W/Shaw Street) of CAMH (1001 Queen Street W).

Toronto Flower Market celebrates and supports Ontario grown flowers & plants, connecting growers and florists directly with the city. Together, we raise awareness about flower varieties grown locally in fields and greenhouses while cultivating a passionate local flower community. 

Founded in May 2013, Toronto Flower Market created the city’s first outdoor flower market. The market season runs monthly from May through October, with special collaborations sprouting up throughout the year. 

Natasa Kajganic was inspired to create Toronto Flower Market after a visit to London’s Columbia Road. A vision of stalls bursting with fresh blooms in Toronto’s public spaces was planted in her mind and has kept growing ever since.

I'd never been before so I popped in while on my walk to check it out.  I was a bit early as there were some vendors still setting up.

It smelled amazing and was so colourful!  There was lots of variety depending on what you are looking for.

As I said, today is the first day.  The 2019 market dates are:
  • Saturday, June 1
  • Saturday, June 22
  • Saturday, July 20
  • Saturday, August 17
  • Saturday September 14
  • Saturday October 12
