Back from the market

Back from the market

Coming back from the farmers’ market with paniers full of fruits & veggies. Notice the beautiful basil plant hanging from the basket…

  1. Love it! The farmer’s market here is more than just buying food for me, it’s a place meet friends, to get inspired, to feel alive. Some people hate the crowded Saturdays, but I love it!

    I have a question for you: just heard a rumor today that a 3.9 student from NY state applied to grad school at University of TO and was rejected based on a new policy that limits the number of American students they have in a class.
    Do you know of any such policy? And if you do, is it really for Americans or foreign students in general?

  2. Hi Carla,

    There has been pressure from the government to increase the number of Canadian students and since departments get a certain funding from the government per student and that Canadian students get more of this piece, it is possible that different departments have had to come up with different formulas as to how many international students they can afford to take. But the difference is on whether the student is a domestic student (Canadian or permanent resident) or international (on a student visa). The university makes no difference on whether the student is American. It is worth noting that U of T also has a guarantee funding policy, which basically means that every single PhD student is fully funded for 5 years. That also has limited the number of PhD students departments can take in…

  5. Alexandra,
    You look adorable on your bike full of produces, I know that still summer in Totonto but when winter arrives can you still ride your bike to the farmer’s market??? I am just curious!

  6. Sil,

    Many people cycle all through the winter here in Toronto but I’ll probably stop once it starts snowing. Snow removal is not that greatest in TO and I don’t feel like fighting it with the cars.

    We then switch to walking – we’re only about 20 min walk from the market so it’s not so bad. And if we have too much to carry, we can hop on the streetcar.
