Exclusive look inside the shipping containers at stackt

Via Curiocity Toronto

We told you all about stackt market, a brand new retail, food, and drink hub. Made out of- drumroll, please- reclaimed shipping containers! Weird recycling flex but okay.

A vacant stretch of land near Fort York has been claimed as the reclaimed hub. Shipping containers house retail and food spaces, living their best new life after much holding things and such travelling. We like to think of this as the retirement home for shipping containers. Maybe they take their dentures out and play bingo and Scrabble after hours.

“The vision for stackt developed while I was living in the area and noticed the lack of an interactive public space, which encourages community connection and engagement,” Matt Rubinoff, the founder of stackt market, said in a written statement.

“What do the people like? They like shipping containers. That’ll get the people going.”- Matt Rubinoff, hopefully.

Here’s the list of businesses that have claimed their own rectangle so far:

It’s a pretty diverse lineup, if we do say so ourselves!

In addition to the mainstays, there’s going to be some pop up events like yoga, succulent planting workshops, and art battles. It’s all looking pretty dang cool!

Come on by and check it out for yourself!
