Ruthy’s Review:
It has been such an honour to launch Joya at Evergreen Brick Works’ farmers market! Not only is it a beautiful part of Toronto to visit, but the organization’s dedication to sustainable practices is inspiring. Evergreen is committed to helping cities flourish and has long been a role model when it comes to greening urban spaces. On top of that, Evergreen also values local artisans and community engagement. These beliefs are so much of what Joya is about. It has been amazing to be a part of Evergreen’s Saturday farmers market, and I look forward to meeting more amazing people at this market throughout the summer.
