My incredible summer of awesome event assignments continues! A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing The Stop’s Night Market, which is an annual charity night market benefiting anti-hunger programs in Toronto.
While I’m by no means a hipster foodie, I’m definitely a fatty at heart and I love exploring good eats in our immeasurably diverse city. As you can imagine, being surrounded by all kinds of delectable dishes, desserts and drinks curated by expert chefs looking to share their passion was a whole other kind of heaven for this food lover.
Shout outs to David and the wonderful team at Winners Products / Coleman Grills for having me document this meaningful extravaganza on a beautiful summer’s eve, and special thanks in particular to the lovely staff at Carmen, The 47 and The Emerson for taking care of me all evening!

The Stop’s Night Market is a teeming feast for the eyes, belly, and heart. This annual fundraising event is a captivating mash-up of the best of Toronto’s street food, art, music, and offers Torontonians a unique chance to experience an iconic space like they’ve never seen it before. Inspired by night markets from around the world, The Stop’s Night Market transforms a public space into a tantalizing feast for the senses over two summer nights in June, featuring over 60 chefs, 20 local beverage vendors, and 35 one-of-a-kind food carts created by local designers.
Held for the first time in 2012, Toronto Life named The Stop’s Night Market as Reason No. 5 in their Reason’s to Love Toronto 2013 edition. BlogTO has called it “quite possibly the nicest, best catered summer soiree in the city.” In 2014, the event SOLD OUT in under an hour and raised over $149,000 for The Stop Community Food Centre’s critical anti-hunger and anti-poverty programs.
