Now on its third year, one of Toronto’s most unique street food market is Market 707. Housed in retrofitted shipping containers, Market 707 has been handed a special jury award at Toronto’s Urban Design Awards. The brain child of forward-thinking community entrepreneurs, they have successfully created a thriving community of micro-entrepreneurs while bringing positive energy to where there has been a gap in the urban fabric. The hope is to provide start-ups with a business case to open up in a bricks-and-mortar location after a year. There are currently ten types of varied international street food being sold (from French to West Indian Roti, to Korean, and cheese from Montforte Dairy) and a few retail shops. Next month, they are planning to open five more “pop-up incubators” for retail that will focus on emerging design talent. On Thursday late afternoons, they also have a farmers market. The market is located on Dundas Street (707 Dundas Street West), just east of Bathurst Street and operating Mondays to Saturdays from 11 am (12 noon on Sat.) to 7 pm.
