The goal of the West End Community Market is to improve the health of West End residents through making our local food system more sustainable, accessible and equitable. The Market provides an opportunity to local producers, businesses and local groups to sell and/or produce a range of other products. The Market is managed by the Winnipeg FoodShare Co-op (WFC) with support from Daniel McIntyre/St Matthews Community Association (DMSMCA), Winnipeg Central Mosque and the Spence Neighbourhood Association (SNA). The West End Community Market is made possible with funding from DMSMRI.
