The Stop’s Night Market is an annual two-day outdoor fundraising event to raise money for The Stop Community Food Centre in Toronto. This year it raised over $200,000 to support their critical access and community-building programs. It’s an all-you-can-eat, all-you-can-drink event with tickets sold for $100 each, and has consistently sold out. Over the two days they featured over 60 chefs and 20 local beverage vendors, with stands created by local designers. Live music and hanging lights shimmered across the area, with a beautiful sunset as a backdrop of one of the best food events of the summer.
 
This was my first year attending and I was really impressed. Line-ups were non-existent or quick to get through, and there was plenty to choose from. I went on Day 2, so some of the highlights included Rose & Sons, Babi&Co, Oyster Boy, and La Carnita. A few vendors started running out of food earlier in the evening, so next time I will go just as it opens Рalthough there was still plenty to choose from. The live performance by Crooked House Road was another welcome surprise, adding class to the event.
 
Without a doubt, I would love to attend again next year.
