WHAT WE DO
Community Marketplace was designed to create a place for all to shop. Marketplace provides fresh affordable healthy food options that can be purchased by a vast range of household income.
Marketplace products are typically a lower cost than for-profit grocery stores and your purchase funds our organization's mentoring programs.
Through many local studies, we have learned about the GAP. The GAP by those who live locally. What is "Living in the gap”? We soon learned that even with a full-time job some are not paid a living wage, and receive very little government services to assist. As individuals strive to get a raise it only decreases their spending power because government services are cut at a faster rate than you are able to climb the economic ladder.
Our market was created by those within our community who was aware of this need in hope to make our local economy thrive.
We have a dream that Meeting Place
through our efforts with Workshops & Training, our wonderful team of
supporters, we will create a community where we can
work together to make life better for

This space was intended for all people to feel welcome and a part of a class they desire to take part in.
