Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

On Sunday, July 6 Class 15 of the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program began its North America Study Tour #NAST2014. 

The first stop on the tour was Detroit and the Sunday Street Market of the Eastern Market. The Sunday Street Market features local items such as home goods, art, jewelry, clothing, Michigan-made products, antiques and furniture - a "departure from its classic Farmers Market Faire" It is a large open air market that has been pivotal in connecting the citizens of Metro Detroit with farm fresh food and plants. The Sunday Market seeks to accomplish a similar mission for non-food goods. The President of the Eastern Market presented the the history and the goals of the market and how this is a part of rebuilding the city of Detroit.

The group then took in a baseball game at Detroit's Tiger Field - a treat for baseball fans and non-fans alike!
