The Stop’s Night Market

The Stop’s Night Market is a feast for the eyes, belly, and heart. This annual fundraising event brings together creatives from Toronto’s culinary, design, performance, and graphic arts sectors, celebrating diversity, community, and the power of food.

Inspired by night markets from around the world, The Stop’s Night Market transforms a unique outdoor space over two summer nights in June, featuring more than 70 chefs, 20 local beverage vendors, and 35 one-of-a-kind food carts created by local designers.

Held for the first time in 2012, Toronto Life named The Stop’s Night Market as Reason No. 5 in their ‘Reasons to Love Toronto’ 2013 edition. BlogTO has called it “quite possibly the nicest, best catered summer soiree in the city.” Funds raised support our critical programs to fight hunger, build hope, and inspire change.

Thank you for your support! #TheStopNM @TheStopCFC

On June 14th and 15th, thousands of people came together to celebrate diversity, community, and the power of food at the fifth annual The Stop’s Night Market, raising $215,000 in support of our critical programs.

The Stop transformed the lot behind 158 Sterling Road into a feast for the eyes, ears, belly, and heart!
