When we were in Toronto for the Easter weekend, Auntie Belinda and Uncle Stefan took us to the Evergreen Brick Works. It’s a rather cool spot -though you do have to look past the ‘trendy’ people (ha ha). The bricks made here have been used for many of the old landmark locations in Toronto.
A lot of the infrastructure remains in the various buildings.
This is one of the very long brick ovens. There were 4 of these. I can’t even imagine the heat in this building back when these ovens were going full blast.
This is what the site looked like ‘before’:
A great big open-pit! Now it’s got lovely ponds and walking paths.
It is even home to a muskrat or two.
Always fun with Uncle Stefan
We love hanging out with Auntie Belinda too.
This food truck has a great message. But once they opened and I saw the menu (and the prices) there was nothing on the menu that my Farmer would have eaten. Speaking of farmers, there was a small farmers’ market going on in one of the buildings. There was an ‘organic’ pork guy so I went over to have a look. Wow, we would have gone out of business selling meat like that!! The pork chop was so small and so fatty. Between the giant bone and all the fat, I would have to cook two to try to feed Colin. And the price…
One last funny picture Ella wants me to share with you:
