We’re excited to announce our newest Mobile Produce Market location: Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood House. The first trial market will take place on May 11th from 10am-12pm at 4065 Victoria Drive.

Besides offering programs, workshops, and resources to the community, Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood House cares a great deal about food security. They cook communal meals in their kitchen on site and their staff and volunteers recently built planter boxes for a vegetable garden. The Neighbourhood House is also holding their 20th annual Community Carnival on May 26th so be sure to stop by for a cake walk, silent auction, games and entertainment, flea market, and, of course, food!
