Join Fresh Roots for the weekly Good Food Market: a neighbourhood veggie stand where all of the food is sustainably grown right at VanTech’s schoolyard market garden.
Sharing food is a timeless, universal act of community. And we believe that healthy produce should be accessible to everyone. That’s why Fresh Roots and the Italian Cultural Centre are teaming up to grow and sell vegetables in the heart of our neighbourhood.
Fresh Roots’ Good Food Markets are places where we sell the food we grow right back to the neighbourhood where it’s grown. They are also community hubs where neighbours, students, and friends come together in a bustling marketplace atmosphere.
Stop by and you may hear an elder’s story about food from their past or learn a recipe that culinary arts students have created from the fresh vegetables at the market. Your neighbour might even teach you how to say your favorite vegetable in a different language!
