The Toronto Botanical Garden is a four-acre sized sacred ground for all flora lovers, that consists of 17 unique gardens that differ in their size and themes. It is located at 777 Lawrence Avenue East at Leslie Street, north of the public Edward Gardens ever since 1958 and was founded by the Garden Club of Toronto. In the past it was called the Toronto Civic Garden Centre and was formally opened as a botanical garden in 2003. What is interesting is that the TBG is not funded by any official governmental institution, but solely from their own activities like fundraising, membership fees and donorship.

The Farmers’ Market is held all year round, every Thursday from 2 to 7 p.m. and currently it’s moved indoors, since it’s the winter season. The market won't disappoint. You can find everything you would expect to find at a farmers' market, from fresh and locally grown vegetables and fruits, grass-fed meats and other produce, baked goods, teas, sweets, honey-based products, and other great locally grown, home-made stuff. And as a bonus, the TBG offers a lot of interesting lectures, courses and workshops about agriculture, garden design, urban gardening or urban beekeeping, so if you want to get some dirt under your fingernails, this is the place to go.
