Cabbagetown: A Wonderful Neighbourhood Celebrates

Contributed by Kathy Flaxman

Cabbagetown is opening up like one of the stunning sunflowers you can see now at the Riverdale Farm.  Starting after Labour Day, the Cabbagetown Festival takes hold of all our senses, making this one of the best times of the year to be part of this vibrant neighbourhood.

 
There are specialty food stores and restaurants to rival any in the city, and some shops that add a layer of innovation to the tapestry of the area.  You can dine at a fine gastro pub or sip what is arguably the best cappuccino in Toronto.  Need fresh kale or some coconut oil? Shop here in Cabbagetown!  Perhaps your taste runs to home décor – you will find items that are specially screened with a Cabbagetown graphic!

 
Joe Rozman of Weenen General Contracting Limited points out that the diversity of Cabbagetown makes it especially appealing.  “There are many fine establishments,” he notes, “we’re very pleased to support our neighbourhood ventures.  It’s super to do business locally.  We’re fortunate to be part of such a strong and exciting community.”
