This weekend we heard about the Sunday Farmer's Market at the Steam Whistle Brewery. The Brewery is part of the old train station round house, the building itself is something to see - especially if you are a train fan...or have little kids who like trains. In front of the brewery there are old station houses which you can explore around as well. Its hard to believe in a city as big as Toronto, there is so much space allotted smack in the centre of town. I mean, this is right by the CN tower. Its a nice little break from the hustle.
Inside the brewery they have old-timey photos of when the round house was being built and it is really interesting to see the city 100 years ago - all that was recognizable was the Fairmont Hotel.
Now, the Farmer's Market is tiny. Maybe 12 stalls - so, if you are going down there expecting to get your groceries for the week - this is not the place, but, if you are looking for an organic cup of the most delicious hot chocolate you will ever have and wash that down with some local cheese - this is the place for you.
You can also do brewery tours and have little beer samples. The beer is good, the staff are friendly and the place is a nice reflection of Toronto of yester year.
