Once upon a market

Pioneer has been on vacation for a few weeks, but we're back with lots of summertime fun to blog about.

First thing, first: There's more to East Lynn Park than being able to cool your heels in the wading pool. If you've got little ones at home today, head over to East Lynn Farmers' Market this afternoon for some fun at the 3rd annual corn fest and family picnic.

Special guest Dan Yashinsky will be reading to the kids at 4:30. Yashinsky is a celebrated storyteller who started the Toronto Festival of Storytelling in 1979 and in the past has been the City of Toronto's storyteller-in-residence and a storytelling radio host. If you were going to hear a story told, this is the guy you want to hear it from!

Afterwards, local band Bad Dog will be hosting a live sing-a-long at 5:00. All this and fresh boiled corn too - head over to the DECA tent and pick up a cob of corn for $2.

A second bit of news is that the Starbucks at Coxwell and O'Connor is finally open so if you're heading to the highway, watch out for Starbucks minions handing out free samples, yum!!
