OCTOBER 21 TO 23 It’s never too early to start shopping for unique holiday gifts. At least, not at Sherway Gardens—the upscale shopping centre west of Toronto hosts a Hometown Fair featuring hundreds of one-of-a-kind products. More than 30 groups offer lovingly created items including knitwear, handicrafts, wood furniture, preserves and baked goods. It’s a great opportunity to purchase some traditional artisan goods while helping to improve Toronto neighbourhoods—all proceeds go directly to help sustain the community centres and other local gathering places of fair participants. Open daily; call 416-621-1070 for more information.
