On Friday, June 19th, the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (NDG) Food Depot launched a unique project in that region of Montreal – the NDG Food Market. The non-profit market is evaluated by residents of the region to be a necessary solution to a lack of affordable food options, and will contribute to better nutrition of the many low-income families in NDG.

The NDG market will be held every Friday from 2 pm till 7 pm, and will feature live music, appetizers prepared by restaurant chefs and will offer fresh produce for affordable price. All the vegetables are grown by Quebec farmers, which presents a better option than imported products found in many supermarkets.

CKUT’s Kateryna Gordiychuk talked with Nicole Fornelli, who is a member of the NDG Community Council, and Lynda Porter, the ex-President of Board of Directors of the Food Depot. They shared with us what the difficulties arose during the process of making the project happen and what their predictions are for the future of the market.
