Posted on

Where can you get amazing food and drink and support a local food bank at the same time? The annual The Stop CFC Night Market!

The walls into the market were lined with info.

@WineGuyTO and I went for our first, but definitely not our last, Night Market last night.  The concept is simple: 1 price = all the food and drink = money raised to help them fund their programs.   $80,000 was raised as 900 tickets were sold for the two nights.   This means for their 80,000 meals for the drop-in breakfast and lunch programs.  You can find them at Wychwood Barns Farmer’s Market, and they also run community cooking, urban agriculture and food systems education programs plus much more.

Last night there were 44 different vendors.  We managed to taste from a number of them, but not all.
