Mazépis Spices brings Caribbean heat to Ottawa

Mazépis only uses fresh and natural ingredients, favouring citrus and vinegar for preservation.

Parkdale Food Centre’s latest innovations to help its neighbours in the 613

The Road Runner sits outside at 30 Rosemount Avenue inside a custom box built by Habitat for Humanity. Donated by the Hintonburg Community Association, it’s the first outdoor community fridge in Ottawa, thanks to the caring team of radical thinkers at the Parkdale Food Centre and its incredible local partners. And it’s just one of the innovative programs put into place by the Centre since the start of the pandemic.
