Complicating the familiar


While I often visit the Midtown Global Market for food-related errands, it wasn’t until recently that I got off the 21 bus several blocks before the designated stop, and noticed the many programs for low-income community members the nearby area has. This is a sign outside a resource centre about two blocks away from the building. While the Market is a great resource for Lake Street, it is certainly a very sanitized experience that does not necessarily reflect many important realities of the community.
