It is time to describe this Warehouse Market!  It is hosted by Ca-Hoa, in a warehouse that was a bean sprout factory years ago.  Now it is a neighbourhood ‘hub’ with a food market, an Italian espresso/coffee window, a photo darkroom, and other exciting initiatives.  The evolution of the space has been fun since the Market opened in June 2017.  Bikes and strollers are parked outside as people stop by for veggies, eggs, meats, seafood, bread, kimchi, kombucha and coffee.  The community has been so supportive!  Customers will regularly let me know how grateful they are that we’ve located in their neighbourhood.  All the vendors share Jessi and Sarah, who staff the Market on Thurs, Fri, and Saturday until 1pm.  We’ve just purchased a bright OPEN sign, so people will know when the market is open for business.  We bought a refrigerated display case for fresh meat and seafood, and other products that need refrigeration.  Our most frequent question now is “how long into the winter will you be open?”  We hope to be open all winter.  We’ve never done this before, but we’ll do our best!

Below are a few photos of the Warehouse Market, staff, and supporters.  We hope you enjoy it.
