July 2013 Food Calendar

I’m so excited to unveil this new feature on the blog: The Foodie Calendar of Events! 😀  I’ve always loved taking advantage of free festivals and events around the city, and of course, shelling out the money for the occasional food fest, bake sale, or charitable cause.  Winterlicious, Summerlicious, and Veggielicious, I’m looking at all of you!  I think it’s so important to feel connected to the community and I always look forward to the different seasonal things that go on as well.

I’ve done some research and I’ve compiled a bunch of great events that might be of interest to you all.  Most of these events take places in Toronto and the GTA, but I’ve also included some a little further away for those who are interested in having a weekend away or taking a mini road trip.  This is a work in progress, so I’m going to be consistently updating and adding to this.  Please feel free to comment and let me know of anything new that comes up or anything I’ve missed.  After this first installment, I’ll be putting this feature up under the header image so you can click and peruse anytime you want without having to sift through old posts.  I hope you guys like this and hopefully you’ll find some stuff here that you’ll want to bookmark and check out!

  2. Hello Deb,
    I wonder if I could add an event to your amazing food calendar. At CSI-Annex 720 Bathurst on Thursday Dec. 15th we’re hosting the Holiday Local Food Bazaar. We’ve got a terrific roster of vendors including Niagara Presents, Earth and City, Boardwalk Chocolates, Chocosol, Augie’s Soups and Forbes Wild Foods. Each vendor will be offering gifts at the $5 price point as well as more substantial gifts for under the tree, etc. We’re super excited about this event that runs from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm overlapping for an hour with the CSI Christmas bash.
    Thanks for your wonderful story on Toronto Office Markets at the Spadina location!

    • Hi Aruna, thank you so much for visiting and I’m so happy you’ve enjoyed the posts and photos! And absolutely, I will add it shortly and tweet the heck out of it tonight and tomorrow morning! 🙂 I wish SO much that I could be there but the weather and my living in Markham don’t make for convenient impromptu visits. I’m so bummed I won’t be there but hopefully I can join in on another event. Thank you again for coming and leaving me a message, I really appreciate it!

    • Aww, thank you, Lisa! I love doing the Food Calendars so much because it really makes you get out of your comfort zone and explore everything the city has to offer and you often discover things you never knew existed!

      I have a whole slew of cooking classes, seminars, farmers’ markets, and other events that I gather up every month too. Just hover over the “Food Calendar” link on the menu bar and a dropdown menu will come up where you see all the others 🙂

    • Thanks Aruna! I’ve been meaning to go through the site with fine tooth comb so I’ll definitely do so for the upcming February Food Calendar 🙂
