Come visit the first ever Shipping Container Grocery Store at 260 Queen St E., a block east of Sherbourne (across from Kim’s Convenience). Grab a fresh fruit or vegetable basket for just $5, and/or pay it forward for someone who can’t afford one.
OPEN SATURDAYS: 11:00am – 4:00pm
In the summer it also serves as our local farm stand, with fresh sustainable produce from our urban farm in Ashbridge Estate and elsewhere! All produce harvested from our Urban Farm at Ashbridge Estate are sold pay-what-you-can.
After meeting with residents when they identified their frustration with the lack of fresh, affordable food in their community, we came up with the ideal solution of having a retrofitted storage container as a permanent place where fresh produce could be purchased at good prices.
