Good Food Market
Time & Location
About the event
The Neighbourhood Food Hub Good Food Market is an accessible weekly fresh food market that features fresh fruits and vegetables at affordable prices.
It runs May - October every year on the lawn at Glen Rhodes Campus. Supported by FoodShare Toronto, the Neighbourhood Food Hub sources the produce through FoodShare Toronto and local and hyper-local growers such as Foodshare's School Grown.GOOD FOOD MARKETS NOURISH PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES.
Good Food Markets increase access to high quality, culturally appropriate, affordable produce in neighbourhoods where it might not otherwise be available, and where farmers’ markets aren’t viable because sales are too low to cover farmers’ costs. Introducing a Good Food Market brings seasonal, local produce plus imported favourites to the neighbourhoods they serve. Markets act as a place-making tool to bring residents together, often evolving into informal community hubs with engaging activities, information booths, freshly prepared foods, artisanal vendors and harvest celebrations.
