Get your spoons ready for the Leslieville Farmer’s Market Annual Winter Fundraiser!
By Stephanie Chow
Last year, over 700 pounds of onions were sliced and diced to make 2000 litres of soup for the annual Souper-Bowl Winter Fundraiser, sponsored by the Leslieville Farmer’s Market. The onion-induced tears that were no doubt shed last year were well worth it: they raised over $3000 and are hoping to do it for a third year in 2013 with your help!
Bring your appetites this Super Bowl Sunday because Le Papillon on the Park’s Chef Lukas and his team are planning to concoct over one tonne of their delicious french onion soup! If soup’s not your thing, no problem: they will also be baking a dozen trays of mouth watering Pouding Chômeur, a caramel cake that will have you cheering long before the football begins! There will also be some local shopping to enjoy: boxes of fresh veggies, handmade shopping bags, and much more!
When: Sunday, February 3, 2013
Time: 10am – 3pm
Cost: Pay-what-you-can or donation
Address: 1001 Eastern Ave
Bring: Some money, a spoon and any sized container!
The money raised will be used to help the market stay running and to enhance the market’s programs and community events. So this Sunday, grab your coat, spoon, and bowl, and have a Souper-Super-Bowl-Sunday!
