Fresh City has farmed at Downsview Park for 12 growing seasons, during which we've grown a lot of food and raised a lot of consciousness around food justice and sustainability.

Last year, we broke ground on a brand new, much larger farm at the south end of the park, with a plan to create a co-farming space and community hub. Spanning 11 acres, The Fresh City Urban Farm will include 5 acres of farming space plus The Barn, a stunning, 1,900 square foot event space and café, opening later in 2022.

In its new incarnation, The Fresh City Urban Farm will be a dynamic and vibrant hub for community and education on food justice and sustainability—for people in all walks of life, wherever you are on your food journey.

We're so excited to welcome you to the farm! Explore the farm below, and subscribe to our emails to get the latest updates.

Rent our Space

The Barn will be available for bookings starting summer 2022 and can host an array of gatherings and celebrations including weddings, corporate events, seated dinners and community events.

Meet Our Farm Partners

The farm will be a hub of learning and a place where farmers can grow food, innovate, operate businesses and run programming to further food justice and sustainability. 

Visit The Farm

We've got big things planned at the farm this summer! You can look forward to farm tours, fresh produce, educational events on food sustainability and much more.
