Fresh Routes Mobile Grocery Store

Tuesdays 11:30AM - 1:30PM | Wyckham House

Fresh Routes mobile grocery store is a community-driven grocery store on wheels that increases the availability of healthy and affordable foods in underserved neighbourhoods of Calgary. The Fresh Routes is a collaboration between the City of Calgary, the Institute for Community Prosperity, Leftovers, local vendors, and community groups.

Open every Tuesday in Wyckham House, the market will have a variety of fresh produce, eggs, bread and some non-perishables. All items are budget friendly - the aim to be under market value, allowing all individuals to have access to healthy food. Some of these items include bananas, apples, berries, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, and almond milk. Items may vary throughout the pilot based on the seasons.

BYOB: Bring your own BAG! Cash, debit, and credit accepted.
