Food Within Reach

Apple Street Market
The Apple Street Market is an example of a food cooperative made up of comunity members, the Northside Farmer's Market, nonprofit organizations, and investors working together to open a full-service grocery store in Cincinnati. This co-op began as a response to grocery stores being removed from the neighborhood, creating a food desert affecting five neighboring communities. This viable model for grocery stores can be used in low food access neighborhoods to not only increase access to healthy and fresh foods but provide sustainable jobs to community members. The co-op is also working on providing transportation so community members can frequent the market.
