The Juneteenth Block Party & Food Market takes place Sunday, June 19, 2022, at Junction Craft Brewery in Toronto, Ont. 

The event includes food and beer pairing and a Black food market in support of the Black woman-led nonprofit Foodpreneur Lab. The day will celebrate Black excellence and joy, welcoming guests to gather, celebrate with friends and family, and experience diverse, underrepresented cuisines.

Sponsored by Higgins Event Rental, the event includes special guest host Ren Navarro, founder of Beer Diversity.

Led by Janice Bartley, Foodpreneur Lab’s stated mission is “to level the playing field for underserved communities and forge Paths where Black foodpreneurs can leverage their cultural insight and lived experiences in food product innovation. They don’t want to just break beyond the grocery store’s ‘ethnic food aisle,’ they want to celebrate new food products that connect with a community’s sense of belonging.”
