Metrolinx, the City, and the Province of Ontario will cooperate to buy land on John St to build an expanded Farmer’s Market and a space for cultural activities, according to an announcement from Laura Albanese and Frances Nunziata.
According to the press release, Metrolinx will contribute to the cost of land on John St. The City will plan and build a facility to host the market and a cultural hub. A design conference held in May created goals and plans for revitalizing Weston. Residents and the organizers said the market was an important part of the community, and must be preserved.
Laura Albanese said in the press release that “Metrolinx’s latest contribution when combined with the new transit investment will create a community space that sets the stage for an arts and culture centre and Market District as part ofthe revitalization of the community.”
Frances Nuniziata told me several times that she would like to see the market moved indoors.
