Long vacant Leslieville lot to become community market

Leslieville is getting another weekend market. And this one's going to be located inside a long vacant lot right next to Stratengers on Queen East.

On Saturdays and Sundays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., starting on June 4, the Leslieville Community Market will take over 1134 Queen St. East. This market will stick around until the Thanksgiving long weekend in October.

For its inaugural weekend, you can expect to see a variety of vendors selling an array of goods, including produce, art and baked goods.

This local, grassroots initiative is transforming an overlooked space into something that'll benefit the community. What's more delicious than that?
