I heard about this little evening market while scrolling through my Instagram feed. They were talking about tomatoes and the vast variety they had for that day’s market. So naturally I had to go.
I called my best friend and she met me at Riverdale Park in Toronto to visit the Cabbagetown Farmers’ Market on Tuesday evening.
The market was so quaint and peaceful. It wasn’t very big, it had perhaps around 13-15 vendors, but you didn’t even notice because of the vast variety of products they had to offer.
Don’t you feel like when a new trend comes along, there is suddenly a hundred of alike products and companies competing?
It’s only natural, that’s typically how markets grow. First there’s a niche, and if you are a few of the first, you have the first-mover advantage—though not for long because as competition increases, you’re suddenly one of many fish in the sea.
That’s how I feel about Farmers’ Markets now a days.
