Common Market

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania



The Common Market is a nonprofit local food distributor with a mission to connect communities with good food from sustainable family farms. This grant will enable Common Market to replicate their successful model of regional healthy food enterprise in the metropolitan Houston region, in order to improve access to healthy food for low income residents while building economic opportunities for small farmers and ranchers, many of whom are people of color typically shut out of institutional purchasing arrangements.
