With the growing popularity and prominence of urban food markets worldwide, the team at Oxford Properties saw an opportunity to pioneer this concept within their Ontario family of shopping centres.
Market & Co. at Upper Canada was the first of its kind. It features a highly sought-after collection of first-to-market and local merchants and brands. They designed the market so guests can purchase quality groceries and specialty items to take home, enjoy food experiences and take part in special events at the state-of-the-art, built-in demonstration kitchen.
Next came Scarborough Town Centre, Yorkdale and the newly opened Food District at Square One. With a focus on independant, small scale artisan producers, Oxford Properties has created a new standard for retail experiences. They have turned shopping into a food tourism experience.
