T&T Waterfront Night Market

Anyone have information of what kind of food there will be? Looks interesting,I'm thinking they will probably have the same vendors from the taste of Asia,which will be great,I just love that feeling of an open street market.

Here's a link:

  1. Vietnamese sandwiches, B-B-Q / satay skewers, stinky tofu, fish balls, charbroiled cuttlefish, chicken wings, bubble-teas....etc. The USUAL yummy (?) street food.
    BTW, there will be entertainments like stand-up comedy shows etc as well!

    1. This is probably like the east-end versions around Pacific Mall--go for the vibe and enjoy the food but dial back your hyper-foodie sensors. It's really more about the atmosphere. Just dig it.

        I hope they have a vendor selling Jiang Bing crepes.

      2. Have you been to the other night market that we had a few weeks ago in Markham? I wonder how this will compare....if its going to be in the T&T parking lot, it will be a lot smaller in size and also parking will be much harder....not sure how its going to turn out, but I intend to go and see for myself anyways.

        The one a few weeks ago had a stall making those crepes you wanted, but IMO I watched them for a couple minutes and they did not seem to be making them very well so I passed.

        You can find these at other times in Toronto though....there was a thread a while back and I posted that they regularly had them at weekends at Sunny Supermarket and also at Oriental Food Mart on Denison (at least the times that I went there on weekends).

        1. And of course, Loblaws is one of the big "sponsors" for the event. As per the promo postcard.

            doesn't loblaws own t&t now? seems quite natural to me that they'd be a sponsor. i'm sure they're just going to get all the vendors as the other night market.

              Yup. I've noticed an expanding merch assortment in the Miss. store since Loblaw's came aboard. Hopefully they'll stay smart enough after the merger to let T&T be T&T and not muck it up.

                I was at T&T yesterday for the first time since returning, and noticed that they now have a lot of "Certified Angus" branding on the beef, which seemed to be the biggest change.

                  Yeah, I buy it at Middlefield. Brisket at a good price, and boneless beef ribs, which were exceptional.

              2. re: pinstripeprincess

                I kind of assumed that since its a T&T event, that most of the "vendors" would actually be stuff made in-house by T&T themselves.

                  it's actually run by na@ap (north american association of asian professionals) with t&t/loblaws as a sponsor/venue provider. they'd likely get a limited number of booths out of the 60 they're supposed to have (i'd guess 5 at most) as part of their sponsorship package. they're likely getting a nice fee for each booth especially if there isn't "ticketed" sales. they'll need to recover costs and having t&t take it over wouldn't let them do so.

                  1. re: szw

                    I am looking forward to this event as well. The free shuttle bus route is not up yet as I was planning to take the free ride back and forth. Well Loblaws has changed T&T they have already reduced the hours for some stores as far as I can tell.

              3. I heard about this event - any idea on whether or not it would be kid friendly?

                  I'm going to take my kids (ages 4 and 7) right at the start of it on one of the evenings. I'm hoping that it won't be too crowded right off the bat and I'm prepared to leave if need be.
