Sole Food Farms is a Vancouver urban agriculture company that grows artisan fruits and vegetables on land in the Downtown Eastside that would otherwise be vacant or discarded. Sole Food not only brings a local, organic food source into the city, but they also empower people living on the downtown east side by providing jobs, training and inclusion in a supportive community of farmers and food lovers.
Sole Food produce is top notch. Some of the best chefs in Vancouver are sourcing their produce from Sole Foods Farm to use in their restaurants, including Hawksworth, Wildebeest, the Acorn, and Burdock and Co. In fact, Sole Food just wont Producer / Supplier of the Year in the 2014 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards.
Sole Food was founded in 2009 and is now growing more vegetables than they’re able to sell. They’ve started an Indiegogo campaign with the goal of raising $100,000 to open two store front locations – a produce stand on Granville Island and a local organic corner store at their urban orchard site on Main and Terminal.

The fundraiser ends on June 1, 2014. Help support Sole Foods reach their goal!
