The Cedar Cottage Food Network hosts six Mobile Produce Markets per month at different locations in East Vancouver. The markets provide fresh fruits and vegetables to community members at wholesale cost. The produce is local and organic whenever possible; we get the produce from a distributor and Fresh Roots Urban Farm.
By running these markets, we hope to reduce barriers to accessing fresh produce such as limited income, physical mobility, and lack of transportation. We also wish to create a welcoming community where we sample recipes, share stories, and chat about all things food.
Produce can be purchased with cash or CCFN tokens. If you would like more information about the markets, contact our Executive Director, Kim, at cedarcottagefoodnetwork[at]gmail[dot]com.
These markets would not be possible without the generous support of the City of Vancouver, Vancouver Coastal Health, BC Housing, and South Vancouver Neighbourhood House.
