The grand opening of The Big Carrot Beach Community Market at 125 Southwood Drive (Main and Kingston Road) took place on June 21, 2018.
Community residents enjoyed fresh carrot juice, giveaways, live music, photo ops with ‘The Big Carrot’ and a brief ceremony where The Neighbourhood Group was presented with a $10,000 cheque. Sarah Dobec, Marketing Manager, talked about the wonderful work we do offering many diverse programs and services to help people live independently and with dignity in the community.
Elizabeth Forestell, our President and CEO, was presented the cheque by Store Manager, James Munro. Elizabeth thanked The Big Carrot for their generosity and welcomed them to the neighbourhood. We look forward to our continued partnership with The Big Carrot.
The new store is bright, cheerful and offers a wide variety of delicious organic, locally-sourced, non-GMO products.
We are delighted to have The Big Carrot in the east-end!
