Have you heard the buzz in Toronto?
It’s all about Nuit Vert, which is a ganja gathering happening this Sunday. Nuit Vert is the party branch of Green Market Toronto, a collective of small craft cannabis businesses being left out in the cold by Canada’s canna-laws. This event which is the first of it’s kind in Canada was founded by Sarah Gilles and Lisa Campbell. Starting on Mother’s day of 2016, these industrious ladies put together this farmer’s market style event after seeing edibles and concentrates continued unlawful status in spite of patient need. The event was a huge success and has since blossomed into a reputable business supported by those who require the access denied by the Canadian government and licensed producers (LP’s), as well as the independent business owners who vend there.
Attending the Green Market, you will find infused topicals, maple syrup, chex mix, candy, mac n cheese, tea, cbd, concentrates, the list of goods could go on forever. These events happen Sundays, and pop up all over the city with the location released usually the day before, which is why you need to follow them on social media (@greenmarketto!) This Sunday’s Green Market is going to be an extra special event called Nuit Vert Holiday Edition. Not only is there going to be over 20 amazing vendors, but it’ll be a fun weedy party on top of it! This event will host a band, djs, raffles, live wood burning and… a playground! (yeah… I know… I’m excited too!) Starting at 6pm until around 11pm, this is surely the place to be this Sunday night, so get your tickets now at eventbrite.ca or buy your ticket at the door. You don’t want to miss this 420 festivity!
