Murdoch Manor (808 5 St SE)
The Community Mobile Market is a partnership between the Leftovers Foundation and the City of Calgary. This initiative aims to reduce the amount of food waste and increase food access by selling fresh produce and bread at a budget-friendly cost. The truck will rotate locations, bringing grocery necessities at affordable prices to those who either have limited access or limited means.
The Community Mobile Market truck will be set up weekly at Murdoch Manor to service residents of East Village. Bring your own reusable bags. Cash, credit, and debit are accepted.
5th Street Square
Meet up with your neighbours on December 1st to celebrate the annual community tree lighting at 5th Street Square. Chat or sing carols with your EV friends as you take a ride on a horse-drawn wagon through the streets and pathways of East Village. With carolers, cookies and a visitor from the North Pole, you'll be in the holiday spirit in no time! Tree lighting will take place at 5:30PM.
This event is family-friendly and free to attend.
