They can’t keep it contained any longer.

It’s official: stackt market has opened its doors. And once you see what’s going on inside, you’ll have a whole new understanding of “thinking outside the box.”

The experiential market covers 100,000-sq-ft of land located on the previously vacant lot at Bathurst and Front Streets. And within this space, countless shipping containers are serving as restaurants, bars, and stores.

Take a gander around the indoor-outdoor market and sip coffee, savour donuts, gaze at art, and enjoy a brew.

And make sure you take advantage of the hands-on opportunities on site, like clay pot design, podcasting, and beer and cheese tastings.

Speaking of beer and cheese — there are plenty of delicious eats around, so make sure you come with an appetite.
