      Is this the same guy that was at the Farmer's market last year (and also at Square One?). The guy last year had a really small trailer/wood oven. This big trailer (according to pic and according to what I saw at Distillery District Truck festival) is different than what I saw last year.

      Hmm.. I just checked my e-mail because I told my sister who lives in Aurora about him last year. I had a link to a CH thread but that thread link don't work anymore

      Place was called Forno Rustico ... The website doesn't seem to be working right now but here is a google cache of it:


      Distillery District
      55 Mill St, Toronto, ON M5A, CA

              Oh too bad, I tried his pizza at the Taste of Lawrence last year and enjoyed it. His website is working again so maybe try contacting him and see if they are still pizza making and where:

                Not sure if this is what you're looking for but there was a wood burning pizza oven booth at the Newmarket Farmer's Market last weekend.

          Hi- I was just sent a link to this thread -hopefully my info can help your search. I have met John when he was selling his oven on kijiji. I have been told by the Aurora Farmers Markets Exec Committee that it has been sold and he wasn't there at all this year. We maybe will be there next spring. Ellas Oven is at the Newmarket Famers Market every sat all year for three years now and they are great. Thanks for the kind words about our pizza- Yvonne
