Inspired and supported by two key programs at the Centre, The Night Market on Fox has launched this year offering young, local and new entrepreneurs a space to test out product ideas and build economic independence. 

The Night Market on Fox invites participation from all community members and creates a space to come and have a meal with friends, neighbours and family, support local vendors and enjoy local talent. 

This market is promoted and managed by the staff  in our Hope Ventures entrepreneurship and employment training program and our Nourish Family Food Centre. In partnership with Youth Services Bureau, it has also created a space for us to hire and train market hosts from their youth employment programs.

There is no fee for vendors and funds are raised through the generosity model. Vendors are invited to make donations on a weekly basis based on sales.

By shopping here, you are supporting access to healthy food for young families, and at the same time supporting the development of future entrepreneurs.
