We were most impressed with our day spent with you today for training. Thank you for your warm reception, excellent training plan, and wonderful hands on learning opportunities. You model the place-making hospitality we would like to have at our market.

Good Food Markets nourish people AND communities.

Good Food Markets are community markets that sell high quality, culturally appropriate, affordable vegetables and fruits. These markets bring healthy produce to neighbourhoods where it might not otherwise be available, and where farmers’ markets aren’t viable because sales are too low to cover farmers’ costs.

Getting healthy food into neighbourhoods and communities where healthy grocery stores don’t exist is the priority. But markets tend to create a certain kind of energy in a neighbourhood too. Rubbing shoulders with neighbours, trying new things, fresh air, exercise–you get a lot more from a market than food.
