For the 2022 season, the Market was located in two Kitchener neighbourhoods – Eastwood and Centreville-Chicopee. Youth Market Leaders worked collaboratively to design and execute the Market by developing and utilizing a wide variety of skills in logistics, finance, marketing, gardening, and leadership.

This year, we decided to increasingly focus on offering produce affordably within the community, by pricing the produce significantly lower than what you would find at local grocery stores. 

We are incredibly proud to have been able to serve over 85 individuals and families in the community at the Market in 2022, selling approximately 304lbs of produce. We were additionally able to donate approximately 265lbs of produce, indirectly reaching an unknown number of people in Waterloo Region. 

 

This Project is Made Possible by Outstanding Youth Market Leaders!

Waterloo Region School Food Gardens actively engages over 100 volunteers with food systems projects within southern Ontario. 

The Youth Food Market is a student-run initiative providing fresh, locally grown and affordably priced produce to the community, on top of giving young people the opportunity to understand and apply business and agricultural concepts.

Remaining and excess produce in 2022 was donated to White Owl Native Ancestry Association & the Community Fridge KW.
