The annual Picnic at The Evergreen Brick Works has become Toronto’s biggest and bestest harvest festival, matching top city chefs with some of Ontario’s most dedicated farmers (and a few of our great winemakers too, just lubricate things properly). On October 2, GFR sent Toronto photographers Emily Patterson and Lainie Knox to take it all in and take a few pictures. – Malcolm Jolley, Ed.
