Mobile retail units now available for businesses and entrepreneurs

Sault Ste. Marie, ON (2022 05 15) – Get ready to take your business to the next level with mobile retail units. Are you a foodie, maker, retailer, or artist looking for an exciting opportunity to showcase your product? The Mill Market in partnership with the City of Sault Ste. Marie is accepting proposals for food and retail mobile units to be located in the Downtown Plaza, the heart of Sault Ste. Marie.

“The mobile food and retail units present an exciting opportunity for new entrepreneurs or existing businesses. Not only a destination in themselves, the two full-service kitchen units, one light duty kitchen unit and four retail units will complement the amenities of the downtown plaza and be located next to the future home of the Mill Market, adjacent to the waterfront boardwalk and popular tourist attractions. Proponents can anticipate significant traffic,” said Tom Vair, Deputy CAO, Community Development and Enterprise Services.

These retrofitted shipping containers will create a dynamic market of food, beverage or retail shops and will be located on the grounds of the future Downtown Plaza, home to many community events and activities. Plus, with the plaza’s interactive water fountain, refrigerated skating pad, performance stage, screen, play structures and ample free parking, your business is sure to attract a wide range of customers.

Interested proponents can review the “Specifications & Terms of Reference” section supplied within the request for proposal. It is anticipated that successful proponents will be operational by August 1, 2023.

“Our over 40 vendors and staff are excited to be collaborating with the City on this innovative initiative. A portion of our new space will accommodate farmers, artisans and craft producers as well as a community centre and space for arts and not for profit organizations. The addition of the mobile retail units will only enhance the downtown experience and popular tourist attractions in the area,” said Robert Pryor, Mill Market Manager.

Proposals for rental units will be accepted no later than June 10 at 2 p.m. Questions concerning the requirements or intent of the statements can be addressed Robert Pryor, Mill Market Manager at [email protected]. Visit for more information.
