Club Monaco brings culture and attention back to its Toronto roots with a new farmers market, currently operating outside the crème-colored walls of its Bloor Street shop. Calling together the cultural best of Canada’s busiest city’s vendors—ranging from salad spinners to coffee brewers—will invade the sprawling storefront for a seven-day-a-week, August to mid-fall stay.

Passersby will be able to experience one-of-a-kind gourmet ice pops by Philips Ice Pops, a selection of homemade sweet treats from Bake Shoppe, artisanal coffees from Boxcar Social, and custom salads by Parts & Labour’s famed executive chef – all while perusing Club Monaco-themed bouquets by Sweet Woodruff that cradle the market in a floral wonderland. The pairing between conceptual pop-ups and retail is hardly new to Club Monaco, who, previously in the year, took this farmers market approach and flipped it on its head, turning Copenhagen’s world-renowned Noma restaurant into its own innovative boutique, a first in the fashion industry. “Club Monaco was founded in Toronto almost 30 years ago,” says Club Monaco CEO John Mehas. “We want to continue to give back to the city that has given so much in shaping what Club Monaco is today.”
