Get your groceries for less on Fridays

Every Friday, Fresh Routes’ Mobile Food Market will be on campus in Kinesiology A (around the corner from Brews and Blenz). You can visit them from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. when they’ll be selling fresh fruit, vegetables, bread, and other non-perishable food items. The food is sold at very affordable prices, so bring your own reusable bag and stock up your fridge! Cash, credit and debit are accepted. 

This initiative is brought to you by the Faculty of Kinesiology and Ancillary Services to help provide healthy options to our campus community.
