MARKET 707

Housed in retrofitted shipping containers, Market 707 is Toronto’s most unique street food and retail market. This space brings together local entrepreneurs serving up more than 10 types of delicious international street food, along with unique goods and services to create an urban food and shopping environment unlike any other. Stop by for an event or take a lunch break on the sidewalk patio.

WINNER of 2013 Special Jury Award from the Toronto Urban Design Awards!

“Market 707 is an incredible community of forward-thinking entrepreneurs, hoping to utilize environmentally sound and creatively stimulating platforms to purvey their goods.”

SPRING & SUMMER (Apr. to Sept.): Tuesday to Saturday 11:30am – 7pm
FALL (Oct. – Dec.): Tuesday to Saturday 11:30am – 5pm*
WINTER (Jan. – Mar.): Hours vary depending on the vendor

* Hours of individual vendors may vary

In 2009, during one of Scadding Court’s international programs in Ghana, SCCC staff witnessed innovative uses of shipping containers transformed into vending stalls and we thought – why can’t we do that? And in 2010 – we did. In response to community feedback, a desire for broadened local employment opportunities and an emerging redevelopment vision, SCCC developed an outdoor market along the Centre’s Dundas Street frontage. Attractive, colourful salvaged shipping containers retrofitted by Storstac now form the basis of a vibrant outdoor neighbourhood market that uses business and community economic development to animate the streetscape, link the surrounding neighbourhoods, generate jobs and revitalize an underutilized area of the City. Market 707 is ideal to start up your business, located in the up and coming Dundas Street West neighbourhood, between Kensington Market, Queen Street West and Chinatown.

Products are now available for sale 5 days a week year-round. These include local cheese and meat products, bubble tea, international street food, bicycle repair and more. During the summer months Market 707 features a Summer Event Series with extended hours, additional vendors, family focused activities and live performances. With hundreds of people coming by to shop, snack and enjoy, this space has successfully been transformed from a drab strip of concrete into a vibrant community and entrepreneurial space.
