Toronto Underground Market
The Toronto Underground Market is probably the only place in the city where you will find butter chicken and waffles, grilled cornbread cheese sandwiches and carrot coconut milk soup, all under one roof — the Evergreen Brick Works’ roof. The “social food market” is where the community can sample delicious and creative eats made by local vendors and chefs. The monthly event sells out quickly, so get your tickets soon.
