Event Details

Third Session: “Why Farmers Markets?” 

The first farmers market in Toronto was started by the late Elizabeth Harris to sell the organic vegetables of Muskoka farmer Dianne Kretschmar. Now Elizabeth’s daughter Anna Murtaugh and Adam Royal are almost self-sufficient in food on the Gaspé peninsula in Quebec, where they helped start a bilingual farmers market. 

Since 2015, the Earth to Tables Project, an intergenerational and intercultural exchange of food activists, has produced short videos and photo essays exploring food sovereignty practices in Indigenous and settler communities in Ontario, Quebec, and Mexico. This short film series will feature three of these videos, followed by discussion of the critical issues they raise and how they relate to the experiences of participants.
