Increasing numbers of Greenbelt farmers are planting multi-cultural food crops, making items such as okra, coriander, green chili, squash, red radishes, vine leaves and calaloo more readily available in Ontario.
The Toronto Environmental Alliance is helping to make people of all cultures feel more at home in Toronto, by offering information on types and locations of cultural foods grown in the Greenbelt and surrounding area.
These unique guides celebrate the diverse cultural heritage of the City by providing information for major ethnic groups, African/Caribbean, Chinese, Middle Eastern, and South Asian about where to buy Greenbelt-grown fruit, vegetables, meats, spices and other farm products that are common to cuisine from their home countries and cultures of origin. The project involves further research on established retailers selling meat, spices, fruits and vegetable grown within the Greenbelt.
