I was recently chatting with a friend in the Maritimes, and she asked me to share some cool things about living in Toronto. Well, besides the harmonious multicultural setting, the unreal shopping opportunities and a selection of some of the finest restaurants in Canada, it’s events such as Love Local that have me oh-so-happy to live in the midst of all the action.
(Technically, since I now live in Mississauga, I’m a bit more suburbanized than the average city dweller – but nevertheless, I am a TO girl at heart.)
Created by the talents behind Foxy Originals, Jennifer Ger and Suzie Chemel, Love Local is an unprecedented, one-day, outdoor retail showcase featuring fashion, beauty, art and crafts made and/or designed in Toronto. Love Local takes everything you love about the old-school craft show and transforms it into a cultural boutique event where Torontonians can shop, explore and mingle with local artisans.
Best of all: Admission is FREE!
Some of the artisans I’m excited to visit:
Foxy Originals (of course!)
Cate & Levi

Love Local will take place at the newly re-designed Evergreen Brick Works on Saturday, June 4th. The Holcim Gallery, with its open-air walls, sunny atmosphere, all within a tree-lined green setting, is the perfect backdrop for this special shopping experience!
See you there!
