Community food markets
Community food markets are small pop-up markets that sell fresh fruits, vegetables, and other foods. These markets are typically offered in neighbourhoods with few food stores nearby, or where residents' mobility may prevent them from getting to stores. They emphasize low prices and good quality.
Community food markets address accessibility challenges that are sometimes associated with regular farmers markets, such as physical access or affordability.
Neighbourhood houses, BC Housing sites, community centres, and other social serving organizations can organize and manage community food markets.
