As part of the effort to recover the history of Toronto’s food system, we are creating a series of interactive digital maps of the city’s overall food system based primarily around listings in historical city and community directories. Each map allows users to select custom search criteria listed with the “layers” toggle, with display information changing as users zoom in to the smaller scale. Selectable criteria include: restaurants and taverns, retail and wholesale meat trades, the wholesale and retail grocery trades, industrial food processing, urban dairy production, supporting culinary infrastructure, and key market sites. The maps are updated as our research and sorting methodologies evolve, but as they are rooted in historical documents not all criteria found in one map will be found in others.
