Regenesis York University Market

About This Market

The York University Market, also known as YUM! Market, is a vibrant indoor farmers market hosted by Regenesis York, a chapter of the environmental organization Regenesis. The organization is committed to environmental and social advocacy, cultivating community spirit, and empowering students. The market is a hub for sustainable and locally-sourced produce and products, aligning with the values of ethical consumption and environmental responsibility.

Operational from September through April, YUM! Market offers a weekly Wednesday gathering from 11 am to 4 pm at York University, excluding holidays, reading weeks, and exam periods. It serves as a platform for organic and sustainable farmers, beekeepers, social and environmental justice groups, and educators to connect with the community. Vendors at the market showcase a wide range of products, including local and natural foods, vegetarian and vegan options, allergen-free prepared foods, eco-friendly household items, as well as organic personal care products, and sustainable crafts.

YUM! Market strives to create an inclusive environment that benefits residents, visitors, students, and vendors by providing access to a diverse selection of fresh, healthy, fairly-traded, and organic foodstuffs and goods. The market emphasizes minimal environmental impact and reflects the diversity and values of the York University community.

Prospective vendors who share the market’s vision and commitment to sustainability are encouraged to apply. The application process involves filling out a form and providing additional documents as needed, such as insurance forms and food-related samples for prepared food vendors.

For further inquiries, interested parties can contact the YUM! Market Manager, Glennis Ch’ng, at glennis@regenesis.eco. The market is an important facet of Regenesis’ broader mission, which encompasses food justice, cycling advocacy, promoting a circular economy, environmental education, community collaboration, climate justice initiatives, eco training, habitat restoration, and support for green jobs.
