Media Advisory - St. Lawrence Market hosting its customer appreciation night
  
Merchants of Toronto’s historic St. Lawrence Market are preparing to hold their annual Customer Appreciation Night, featuring lively entertainment and samples of merchants’ foods.

Date: Thursday, April 6
Time: 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Place: St. Lawrence Market, Front and Jarvis Streets

South Market merchants are giving their customers free invitations, which must be shown at the door for admission to the South Market event. Invitations are not required for a Farmers Market Customer Appreciation Night and Toronto Dollar Party that will be held in the North Market building at the same time as the South Market event. Musical entertainers will be performing at both sites throughout the evening.

Many Farmers Market vendors will be on hand in the North Market building to showcase their products and answer questions about the Farmers Market. The Farmers Market is a great Toronto tradition - now in its 203rd year.

The Toronto Dollar Party is about family fun, with live music, free food, children’s crafts and floor hockey. It’s also an opportunity to chat with representatives of many local community organizations. And there will be award presentations at 7:30 p.m. involving former mayor Barbara Hall and Bob Yamashita. The Frankly Bob Awards recognize artists; the Elaine Hall Caring Service Award highlights a caring worker in Toronto; and the Jennifer Kateryna Koval’s’kyj Literary Award for Children and Youth celebrates writing about acts of kindness and caring.

Media representatives are invited to attend the market’s customer appreciation night in the two market buildings, with admission to the South Market simply by showing media accreditation.
