About us

About us

We are an online marketplace for social impact products. We ourselves are a social enterprise that works towards creating opportunities for growth and skills development for teens who are primarily new to this country. We are an enterprise of Parkdale Food Centre and the owners of Thirteen A Social Enterprise, our spice company that creates African spice mixes and develops recipes to share with our clients.

We wanted to create this new space for businesses like us to be able to come together and reach a clientele that supports our same goals and interests! A place where buyers and sellers can come together to support a wide range of social initiatives with the power of their purchasing choices. This is not only a market, it is a market with a social purpose.
