Attending the Toronto Food and Drink Market

 I'm forever on the lookout for a good market, no matter where I am, if I know there's a market I can attend, I'm totally there. At the beginning of April the Toronto Exhibition Place holds the Toronto Food and Drink Market, not your traditional kind of market, but with market in the name, I knew I'd be checking it out.
TO Food + Drink Market takes place over 3 days with a variety of  vendors; selling products, giving out samples and providing demonstrations. A $15 ticket gains you entry to the event and some swag, but the food trucks are extra along with drink tickets ($20 for 20) and said demonstrations.

I did not try the SPAM Musubi, but I kinda wish I had.

My friend and I split out 20 drink tickets and got to tasting. I'm not a huge beer drinker, but thankfully everyone had a cider option; some great, others not so much. I did come across a lovely English inspired scrumpy which made me miss home London. Speaking of London, I know I must be outta pub-night-out practice cause halfway through my tickets I was getting a bit tipsy. I soldiered on.

Food Truck Alley was my favourite part of the event (after the ciders), but there were limited options. I finally settled on shrimp and fish tacos from Buster's Sea Cove. Followed by a Pulled Pork Sundae (pulled pork, mashed potato, and gravy. Heavenly!)

Dessert was a butter tart made with ice wine. (It's okay if you don't understand those words. It's a Canadian thing.)

When I got home that night I gathered my swag together to admire my haul. Not bad. It's not a cheap day out and I probably wouldn't go every year, but it was definitely a lot of fun.


  1. mmmm I love Busters! This all looks and sounds delicious!

  2. I love a food truck and a food market. Can't go wrong with that in my books.


Let's discuss!
