Client News: Indulge in Toronto’s Finest Local Cuisine at the Second Annual Front Street Foods Pop-Up Market at Adelaide Place on Weekdays June 13 – August 5
Toronto’s most popular food destination returns to the city in a new home at Adelaide Place
TORONTO, ON (June 2, 2016) – This summer, thousands will flock to the second annual Front Street Foods (FSF) at Adelaide Place (150 York Street — at the corners of both Adelaide/University Avenue and Adelaide/York), to tantalize their tastebuds with dishes and delicacies designed by 20 local chefs, restaurants and food entrepreneurs. From sweet and savoury, to lush and succulent, this carefully curated culinary market, presented by Toronto Market Company (TMCo.) and Dream Office REIT, will be open for the public to enjoy weekdays on June 13, 2016 to August 5, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. (with breakfast vendors opening early at 8 a.m.).
“Toronto is rich with culture, and our local cuisine is no exception,” says Melissa Zuker, co-founder of TMCo. “With the success of last year’s Front Street Foods, we’re excited to allow visitors the chance to discover new flavours from the best small businesses, entrepreneurs and vendors in our new home at Adelaide Place. We are very happy to be working with Dream to provide an unprecedented tenant amenity.” Madeleine Nicholls of Dream adds, “We have a wonderful and unique space in the heart of the city and it will be great to see it come alive in the summer months offering our tenants and neighbours another reason to celebrate summer in Toronto.”
Last year, Front Street Foods (which started on Front Street at Union Station) quickly became a must-visit attraction in Toronto, drawing huge crowds to covet local cuisine throughout the summer months. This year, conveniently located on the 2nd floor terrace accessible directly from the street by an outdoor staircase at Adelaide Place (at the corner of York and Adelaide and also accessible from University and Adelaide), FSF will be an oasis in the city featuring pop-up vendors crafting their dishes on-site, along with craft beers and specialty drinks for attendee’s immediate indulgence. Whether looking for a delectable daytime snack, or a satisfying lunch solution, or an after work bite the market will feature temptations for any palate.
