EVENT: Sun, June 15 – Cyclefare at The Leslieville Farmers’ Market


Sunday, June 15, 2014 – 09:0014:00

The Leslieville Farmers’ Market wants you to buy your baguette by bike.

The second annual Cyclefare – featuring cargo bikes and accessories, cycling advocates and two-wheeled vendors – will take place on Sunday, June 15, 2014. The market invites bike-minded businesses to get in touch with ideas about potential collaborations.

Last year’s event featured gelato on wheels; liquid chocolate in a bike-powered blender; 32 Spokes (our ward’s cycling advocacy group); sales and displays of grocery-carrying accessories; a used-bike drive for Charlie’s FreeWheels; free bike check-ups; and a bike wash. Unusual cargo bikes from a variety of enthusiasts were also on display.

A cargo bike expo: Cyclefare is an opportunity for people who create or appreciate cargo bikes and people with food businesses to discuss market trends and opportunities. It’s a place to show off that sweet ride you’ve been working on, or a new contraption you’ve built to get your eggs home from the market in one piece.

Cyclefare celebrates the past, present and future of the bicycle in Toronto as a utilitarian vehicle. With this event, The Leslieville Farmers’ Market hopes to introduce and encourage cross-pollination between couriers, cargo bike retailers, commuters, caterers, and restaurateurs.
