FOOD: The weekly UTSC Farmers’ Market launches today, featuring the wares of local producers, artisans and farmers. Learn the benefits of buying locally while stocking up on healthy produce, bread, honey, maple syrup, meat, herbs, jams, and much more. University of Toronto Scarborough Campus, Outer Parking Lot #4 (1265 Military Trail), 3–7 p.m., FREE.

DEVELOPMENT: Do you reside on the waterfront? Maybe you just frequent it on summer weekends? Either way, you’re invited to the Central Waterfront Public Meeting. Find out what’s in store for the waterfont this year with an overview of current projects, focusing on the upcoming Queens Quay revitalization construction. Harbourfront Centre, The Brigantine Room (235 Queens Quay West), 7-9 p.m., FREE.

MUSIC: Emerging Canadian composer Jason Doell debuts his “Delicate Triangles”, which is a site-specific, multi-ensemble chamber music piece, created for a mobile audience. What does that mean? Three groups of musicians, armed with everything from clarinets to cellos, will play simultaneously from different spots in the room. Their sounds will combine, transform, and dissolve into one another. Unlike conventional performances, attendees are encouraged to roam, so they can experience the varying perspectives each point of the triangle brings. The Gladstone Hotel, 2nd Floor Gallery (1214 Queen Street West), 8:30 p.m., $10 or PWYC.
