Inspired by night markets from around the world, The Stop’s Night Market transformed the alley and parking lot next to Honest Ed’s into a tantalizing feast for the senses. This year’s event provided a mash‐up of Toronto’s best street food and art, offering Torontonians a unique chance to experience Honest Ed’s iconic space like they’ve never seen it before.
This year’s event featured over 60 chefs and 35 one‐of‐a‐kind food carts created by local designers. Proceeds from the event support The Stop Community Food Centre, an organization that works to increase access to healthy food in a way that maintains dignity, builds health and community and challenges inequality. OpenCity Projects had the chance to chat with Danielle Goldfinger, the Event Co-ordinator at The Stop, to understand the organization’s mission and the vision behind the activation of this large space.
