What we ate at The Stop’s Night Market 2017

All the best eats from the first night of the annual food fest


Toronto is home to its share of food events, but The Stop’s Night Market, an annual two-day fundraiser for The Stop Community Food Centre, always stands out from the pack. Taking over an empty lot on Sterling Rd., the market features two nights of food and drinks, each with a different set of vendors. If you weren’t among those lucky enough to stroll and sample at the 2017 edition last week (June 13 and 14), here’s a look at what was on offer at night one of the event.

Rasa managed to make brussels sprouts the life of the party by crisping them up and throwing on Scotch bonnet and cheese sauces.
