Explore Market 707 – Toronto’s premier outdoor food and retail market housed in retrofitted shipping containers, founded by Scadding Court Community Centre. Located in the Alexandra Park neighborhood of downtown west Toronto, the market has transformed the streetscape and created a landmark destination. Join us for a tour to learn about the history of the area, how markets can revitalize underused public spaces while creating sustainable economic opportunities, and how cross-sectoral collaboration can produce replicable, scalable models that benefit businesses and communities. A presentation & conversations with management and vendors will bring to life the perspectives of those involved in creating successful markets.
