The Bodega is the bread and butter of the Foundation. Each day it will act as a community benefit by offering affordable groceries to members of the community. The best way for you to support us is to simply shop for your produce, local products, dairy and pantry staples located in the Fresh Air Hall at the Market. Your support helps us grow our offerings, educate about seasonal and healthful foods and see our prices low. Our offerings complement the other vendors at the Market, so you can enjoy one stop, 100% local shopping.

The Foundation will also operate a weekly Farmers Market with capacity for 40+ local vendors. Our Farmers Market runs year round and is a space or local growers, producers and artisans. In addition to local food, our Market provides an affordable and accessible entry for budding entrepreneurs.
