Founders’ Food Hall & Market was created to serve as a cultural and community hub for locals and visitors. A destination to be discovered for the first time and rediscovered again and again. A space that’s equal parts innovative, inspiring, and inviting. A place where you can hang out with friends, bring your family together, connect with community, and have fun.

A Place to Connect
Founders’ is a place to catch up with friends, connect with your community, and stay awhile.
Everything we do revolves around creating a space that’s inviting and inspiring. Our cultural and community hub is a converted industrial brick building from the early 1900s located on Charlottetown’s waterfront. The large windows and high ceilings convey the light, laid-back vibes of the market. Our outdoor patio (Charlottetown’s largest!) and cozy mezzanine seating make it easy to lose track of time, whether you’re enjoying craft beers with pals, lunching with colleagues, or getting work done remotely.
