Thanks to our volunteers! They make our Market possible, every Thursday (and quite a few hours in between Thursdays as well)!
Vishnu joined last year to follow his friend Shath and, like the rest of us, fell in love with the Market! He is now one of our most important volunteers, on-site from 2:30 to 8:30 every Thursday.
Outside the market, Vishnu is a computer programmer and loves to hang out with friends and listen to epic video game music!
Hi, my name is Shathvahi Ramesh.
I am currently a student at the University of Toronto, and my study interest is in environmental ethics and religious studies.
I am a lover of nature and any activities related to nature. Things I enjoy most are finding new bike paths and yoga. In addition, I am a youth ambassador at an upcoming organization (Global interactions) striving to provide an inclusive space and education for youth.
Rumi Jeraj hails from Sherwood Park Alberta (the world’s largest hamlet) and is a recent graduate of Ryerson University where he completed his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Performance Dance. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Rumi’s art practice has involved a return to nature and a curiosity about how natural and urban spaces collide. This has fervently led him to the joyous moments spent volunteering at the underpass market. He hopes to see you there sometime soon.
Marianick fell in love with the Underpass Park Farmers’ Market right from her first visit. The location, the atmosphere, the people, and of course… the food, everything was perfect!
As a learning experience designer, it was very natural to take over the design and maintenance of this website.
With a professional journalist father, Mathieu was practically born and raised into photography. Have you ever looked back at your first-ever photographs? Most of the time, they’re clumsy – yet touching – attempts at trees, landscapes and monuments. Mathieu’s child pictures, taken with a disposable camera (yes, he was born in 1983!), are all portraits. He has always been fascinated by the diversity of the people of this planet and has been trying to capture it since his youngest age.
The Underpass Park Farmers’ Market, with so many fascinating characters and their beautiful product, is an ideal means of expression!
