Toronto sellers seek equilibrium after high prices

Bruce Nicholas, the terminal’s general manager, said tonnage was up just 0.1% last year.

Nicholas said the Arctic air that froze blossoms last spring, practically wiping out Ontario’s apple and tender fruit crop, was a blow to growers who sell in the terminal’s farmer’s market.

“Prices were up and some growers had nothing to sell … it hurt the whole market,” he said.

He hopes a major construction project about to get underway to enclose the loading docks and offer shelter to smaller vans parked further away from the docks will encourage even more buyers to use the terminal.
