    Big changes for 2019: The neighbourhood farmer’s market previously located at Kildonan MCC Thrift Store will now be held at the Holy Eucharist Parish Centre, 460 Munroe Avenue at Watt Street (see above poster).
    The Munroe Ave. Farmers Market will be hosted by Holy Eucharist Parish in partnership with Bronx Park and Chalmers Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation.
    The Munroe Avenue Farmers Market will be open every Wednesday from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. August 14 until September 18.

    A HUGE community thank-you goes out to Kildonan MCC Thrift Shop for hosting the neighbourhood market for 5 years! Although it is sad to leave the original location, we feel very excited about the prospects of a move to an after work / weekday schedule at a nearby home. 
    We hope to see you at the 2019 markets! Please share the attached poster widely!
