With Greenest City taking a lead role and support from West End Food Coop, local businesses and Parkdale BIA, the Parkdale Community Food Market is run. A community-run space characterized by the recognition of difference, the point of encounter with diverse Parkdale community members, providing the community with accessible fresh produce, and the hybrid of multiple functions – farmer’s market, fresh produce from community gardens, business vending, and Parkdale information table. The market runs from early May- late August.
