Building Roots believes all neighbourhoods need places to grow, cook, share and buy healthy food. We’re a social venture, working collaboratively to create urban agriculture, kitchens, markets, retail and food hubs.
After meeting with residents when they identified their frustration with the lack of fresh, affordable food we came up with the ideal solution of having a retrofitted storage container as a permanent place where fruits and vegetables could be bought.
We’ve also expanded our work – with the support of the Family Association for Mental Health Everywhere and the Ontario Trillium Foundation – we are working to create community cohesion in Moss Park with a series of community initatives – youth, children’s and cooking programming.
Please visit and shop at our Market during opening hours, on Queen St, a block east of Sherbourne. We are actively seeking more volunteers at the Market, so please hit up our Contact page and send us a note.

To our Partners and Clients who have helped us over the years, we could not have made it this far without you. Thank you! We appreciate your generosity!
