For residents of some remote regions of Toronto, shopping is a difficult and expensive task. Sometimes, the nearest supermarket is more than a kilometer away. But a project carried out in the city changed this reality using an adapted bus as a traveling market.

The Mobile Good Food Market bus is a project created to take healthy and cheap produce to residents on the outskirts of the city. The bus, which is completely accessible to wheelchair users, was donated by the Toronto Transit Commission and adapted by LGA Architectural Planners for the NGO Food Share.

When it hits the roads, it looks just like an ordinary vehicle. But it is when it parks that the transformation takes place: the windows become shelves and the internal space is taken up by the food shelves.
