Media Advisory: Market merchants thank customers with an evening of entertainment
  
The St. Lawrence Market will open its doors after hours on Thursday for the
merchants' annual Customer Appreciation Night and Toronto Dollar Party. Market
customers and supporters of Toronto Dollar, Toronto's community currency, will
be treated to an evening of entertainment and food samples from the market's
merchants. Anyone who wishes to attend can pick up a free ticket from any St.
Lawrence Market merchant or Toronto Dollar volunteer; they are required for
admission.

Date: Thursday, April 1

Time: 6:30 - 9:30 p.m.

Place: St. Lawrence Market
95 Front St. E. (at Jarvis Street)

The entertainment lineup will include a performance by Opera Atelier, a North
American theatre company that interprets opera, ballet and drama from the 17th
and 18th centuries. Live bands will also perform, including the Foggy Hogtown
Boys, New Orleans Hotshots, Toronto Saxophone Quartet, Ouzo 3, Tiako Japanese
Drummers, Maracta Nunca Antes and bagpiper Allen McDonald. Rancho de Nazare, a
Portuguese dance group, and Levendia-X, recognized as the only Hellenic dance
group in Toronto, will perform traditional dances from their respective
repertoires. Mask artist Pamela Schuller will display her creative talent of
mask making and Earlee the Clown will also make an appearance.

The City of Toronto owns and operates the St. Lawrence Market, which Food and
Wine magazine's April 2004 issue named one of the top 25 food markets in the
world.
