Parkdale Good Food Market - West Neighbourhood House

The Food Market in Parkdale is back, and we are thrilled to launch its new name this year: The Parkdale COMMUNITY Food Market. We decided to rename it because it is mainly run by community members who support selling fresh and affordable food for Parkdale residents. The new name recognizes the power of community.  See below FoodShare’s reflection on the term “Good Food”. (In previous years the market was the Parkdale Good Food Market).

This season the Market will be run on Wednesdays from July 10 to August 28 from 3 to 7 p.m. in Masaryk Park. This promises to be an engaging weekly event that is not only a crucial part of our commitment to sell low-cost veggies and fruits, but also open spaces and opportunities for folks to gather, make new connections, and get to know local vendors and community-based organizations.

What to Expect in the Market?  

This summer at the Community Food Market you can expect not only fresh, local produce at low cost prices, but also local food vendors such as Sonam’s Momos, Rahma’s Samosas, and other baked goods. There will be a wide variety of local vendors and artisans selling beauty products, candles, art, and much more! You can also explore the services offered by our partners and benefit from their community outreach initiatives at tables hosted by local Parkdale organizations. We have lots of fun surprises planned this summer such as community barbecues, live music, and children’s activities.

We are excited to see you this summer at the Parkdale Community Good Food Market!

If you have any questions or want to run an activity in the market this year, please contact Roberto at



What is a Good Food Market?

Good Food Markets sell high-quality, affordable fruits and vegetables. They bring healthy produce to neighbourhoods where it might not otherwise be available, and where farmers’ markets are not viable because sales are too low to cover costs. You can learn more about Good Food Markets more Foodshare’s website.

Who’s Involved?

Greenest City is working with FoodShare, Toronto Public Health and Parkdale Food Network to deliver to Parkdale Good Food Market. As the market develops, more vendors and community resources will be added.

Get involved!
