MORE ABOUT THE RIVERSIDE MARKET & RIVERSIDE COMMON PARK
The Riverside BIA, established in 1980, is one of Canada’s first BIAs, located along Queen Street East between the Queen Street Viaduct to just past De Grassi Street. Rich in history, green spaces and public art, the BIA includes over 100 unique eateries, retails shops, boutiques and a range of professional services. We are pleased to activate the neighbourhood with the Riverside Market, a collaboration of different organizations, vendors, musicians and artists on select Sundays.
Riverside Common Park is located at 657 Queen Street East. The Riverside BIA and community collaborators are working together to bring in regular activations to this new community space, starting this fall and winter! The first few markets are a collaboration with local Toronto organizations and artisans to bring festive markets to Riverside Common Park.
It’s all part of the Riverside Reconnects series to help welcome everyone to enjoy what our local business district and neighbourhood has to offer!
