I'm very pleased to say that markets this year WILL HAVE MUSIC!!
Ms. Scandalli and I will be:
@ East York Farmers Market most Tuesdays from May 10 through October;
@ Weston — June 18
@ Dufferin Grove —Aug 4, Sept 15 & Oct 13
@ Annette — June 22, July 13, August 10 & Sept 21

more to come…
It's now March 2022…
We're hoping that the end is, if not in sight quite, not to far around the corner!
Ms Scandalli and I are very excited at the prospect of playing and greeting everyone at Farmers markets throughout Toronto — beginning in May!
Sigh… I'm pleased to report that some farmers markets are now opening and that St Lawrence Mkt has remained open all along (Kudoos to the Daniels for making it so!!). Sadly, music is not allowed at any markets for the foreseeable.
In other news, I have recently aquired a new 'box' —it is a pump reed organ made by W Bell & Co in Guelph, ON in 1871!

At St Lawrence Farmers Market most Saturday mornings. Lovely short set w/Geoff Somers @ ABFC on the 2nd!
Late October 19
Just played the final East York market for the year — fond 'so longs' until next June. We hope to be at St Lawrence often during the winter months and await scheduling at other indoor markets as well.
Slipping slowly into autumn but the markets are full of wonderful fresh foods. We will be at a number of them in September and October, including the Main Stage at Leslieville on September 8!
Summer has arrived in its often-abrupt fashion and Outdoor Markets
are in full swing. Strawberries have been sumptuous, asparagus and lettuce lovely, and tree fruits, melons and other berries just around the corner.
and I will be in attendance at many venues through October (see dates on the left) and look forward to playing for you!
The Outdoor Farmers Markets
are now opening and I'm very pleased to be playing at so many fine venues throughout the summer and fall (see dates on the left).
Hope to see you there!
Ahh…Toronto's famous 'almost' spring. Those of us who are veterans know that these semi-mildish temperatures with undercutting cool breezes could go on for some time (Even until June when summer would arrive with a hot bang!)
But hope (at least) springs and I have a growing list of bookings for outdoor markets (see left) beginning in May.
Hope to see you there!
Snow is beginning to leave us -- in large puddles and not instantly —but…
Looking forward to better walking weather and, eventually, outdoor markets (even have a couple of summer bookings).
Meanwhile Saturday mornings are fine at St Lawrence Farmers Market
— between the pies, the coffee, and the apples…
Snow and cold outside but I'm bellowing on at the St Lawrence Market most Saturday mornings and have an appearance or two at the Sorauren Indoor Farmers Market
Outdoor markets are winding down -- more that a bit chilly for the accordion player this fall!
Just booked some up-coming dates indoors with the Sorauren Market
and the Brickworks
and I will be at the St. Lawrence Farmers Market
most Saturday mornings
between the pies, the coffee, and the apples…September 18
Ms Santalla Scandalli
is back from Philly with her new bass register switches well installed.
An unusual repair — the master switch simply broke in two. All is well now.
