Union Station outdoor market to be extended 4 weeks

Good news for commuters, Bay St. workers and fans of good times - the popular Union Station outdoor food market known as Front St. Foods has just announced an agreement with the City to extend its run by four weeks.

The market, which was previously slated to close on August 30, has by most accounts been a raging success. Steady crowds have descended on the outdoor space on Front St. filling up on tacos, bao, cold-brewed coffee, smoothies and more.

The additional weeks means the market will now close on September 27 - it also opens the door to new vendors to join the fun. According to organizer Melissa Zuker, the extended run will feature many of the same vendors offering new menu items but new chefs, restaurants, bakers, food entrepreneurs, and artisanal food makers are encouraged to apply.

Are you exciting about the extended run for the outdoor market? Let us know in the comments.
