About the organizers: DECA/WoodGreen's successful Pop-up Shop program on Danforth East fills empty storefronts, gives entrepreneurs a great start, brings local shoppers out on the street and engages the community in the effort! The program has reduced the storefront vacancy rate to a healthy 9%, down from 17%.
Special thanks to the Metcalf Foundation for their support!

Danforth East Community Association (DECA) is a group of neighbours that started working together in 2007 to make our community more vibrant, walkable, safe and fun. In our first five years, we’ve made big changes to our little pocket, starting with our East Lynn Farmers’ Market, giving facelifts to a number of Danforth stores, opening pop-up shops in empty storefronts and bringing the Danforth East Arts Fair to the community. With your help, we can do even more.
