Fundraising and Special Events
In light of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, and after careful consideration, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel The Stop’s Night Market in June 2020.
As you know, this event raises significant funds for The Stop’s critical food access programs, therefore your support during this pandemic is important now more than ever.
We are exploring new, alternative ways to keep the spirit of The Stop's Night Market alive, and will provide further details soon. Stay well.
Once you walk through the gates of Night Market, you’ll be treated to an all-you-can-eat feast for the senses.
Sample as much as you like from our food and beverage vendors, and while you’re digesting, relish the vibrant atmosphere, connect with friends, and enjoy fabulous music and live performances.
The Stop’s Night Market is an opportunity to enjoy good food and to build our community—something that we do at The Stop Community Food Centre every day.
Psst…monthly donors to The Stop get first dibs on Night Market tickets!
All proceeds from The Stop’s Night Market benefit The Stop Community Food Centre‘s critical food access and community-building programs.
Our offerings include a healthy food bank, nutritious drop-in meals, perinatal and family supports, community kitchens and gardens, and youth leadership programs—all of which provide dignified access to healthy food, strengthen social connections, build skills, and promote civic engagement.
Underlying all of The Stop’s efforts is the belief that food is a basic human right. Working alongside our community members, we’re challenging inequality and changing the narrative around poverty.

The Stop’s Night Market is a critical fundraiser for The Stop at a time when our programs have never been more urgently needed. Skyrocketing housing costs, precarious employment, unlivable social assistance rates, and lack of affordable childcare are among the policy shortcomings that continue to challenge our neighbours and their families in their aspirations for healthy, dignified lives.
We rely on the generosity of our donors to provide our critical food access and community-building programs. All proceeds raised through ticket sales for The Stop’s Night Market support our community services.
Sorry! As much as we would love for you all to attend, we cannot guarantee tickets. However, monthly donors to The Stop do get early access to ticket sales.
Complimentary tickets are available through event sponsorship only.
Your ticket gives you access to The Stop’s Night Market for one night only. Once you enter the event, you can eat and drink as much as you like from our food and beverage vendors from 7PM to 11PM!
As The Stop’s Night Market is an all-you-can-eat-and-drink event, the value of the advantage that ticket buyers receive may be more than the cost of the ticket. Therefore, in compliance with Canada Revenue Agency regulations, ticket buyers will not receive a tax receipt for any portion of their ticket purchase.
You can only enter the event on the night for which your ticket is valid. There are no exceptions. All sales are final, no exchanges and no refunds can be issued.
Yes! We’re looking for volunteers to help with everything from event setup to tear-down. There will be multiple shifts available.

No. Our chefs are generously donating their time and ingredients, and base the number of servings they offer on the number of expected guests each night.

Thank you in advance!
