Toronto’s most popular food destination to offer up specialty scoops to benefit the Jays Care Foundation
TORONTO, ON (July 19, 2016) – As the summer months continue to heat up, Front Street Foods (FSF) at Adelaide Place (150 York Street — at the corners of both Adelaide/University Avenue and Adelaide/York) has partnered with Junked Food Company (one of FSF’s 19+ vendors) to create a unique way to give back while cooling down — a specialty Blue Jays ice cream, available exclusively at the pop-up market. The cone, which features ballpark popcorn, sour blue raspberry sugar and blue chocolate will be on sale from now until August 5th for $6.25, with one dollar from each sale being donated to the Jays Care Foundation.
“We wanted to find a unique and memorable way to contribute to our community, ” says Melissa Zuker, co-founder of TMCo. “With Junked Food Company’s creativity, we were able to develop a sweet and savoury way for our customers to give back to the Jays Care Foundation, an important organization that focuses on improving the lives of Canadian children.”
In addition to introducing the new Blue Jays ice cream, Front Street Foods will also be hosting their first food crawl, in collaboration with popular Instagrammer TO’s Finest. The food crawl, which is available from now until August 5th allows customers to purchase an official passport for just $5.00 <insert link> and visit any of the 19+ Front Street Food vendors after 2PM to claim a specially priced dish for just $8.00. A portion of the food crawl passport proceeds will be donated to Community Food Centres Canada.
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 is 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 features temptations for any palate.
Front Street Foods, presented by Toronto Market Company (TMCo.) and Dream Office REIT, is open for the public to enjoy weekdays until August 5, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, and until 8 p.m. Wednesday to Friday (with breakfast vendors opening early at 8 a.m.).
