News Release - St. Lawrence Market and The Food Dudes collaborate on the first St. Lawrence Market Summer Series event
On Thursday, August 4 from 6 to 10 p.m., the St. Lawrence Market patio will be transformed into a downtown oasis of food, drink, music, performance and celebration. This new St. Lawrence Market Summer Series event, presented in partnership with The Food Dudes, a Toronto catering and events company, joins the Market’s storied purveyors with Toronto’s finest chefs, musicians and artists in a true feast for the senses.

“I can’t wait to see the St. Lawrence Market patios come to life for the Summer Series event,” said Deputy Mayor Pam McConnell (Ward 28 Toronto Centre-Rosedale). "The Market is one of the city’s top summer destinations for both visitors and locals. Holding this type of celebration in the heart of the summer is an excellent way to highlight this fresh, vibrant atmosphere.”

Built upon the smashing success of The Food Dudes’ Block Party series and the St. Lawrence Market’s world-renowned reputation as a top food market, the innovative Summer Series production merges cuisine and art in an iconic setting to create an unforgettable evening you won’t want to miss.

Tickets for the Summer Series can be purchased online through General admission tickets are $30 (plus taxes and fees) and include two food tickets for use at the event. Drink tickets and additional food tickets will be available for purchase onsite on August 4.

“We are so excited to be partnering with St. Lawrence Market on the first ever patio event,” said Lindsay Klein, Food Dudes Chief Operating Officer. Adrian Niman, Food Dudes Owner and Executive Chef, added: “The Food Dudes are built on the concept of dynamic culinary arts and the principle of using the highest quality ingredients, so collaborating with the St. Lawrence Market – a Toronto landmark known around the world for the best food offerings – seemed like a natural fit.”

With Food Dudes chefs and local Market merchants serving innovative features and celebrated classics, the Summer Series is the best way to spend a summer evening on one of the city’s largest patios.

Summer Series event sponsors include Amsterdam Brewery, Tequila Tromba, Sole Power Productions and Chair-man Mills.
