Good Food Market
FoodShare Good Food Markets are community markets that sell high quality, affordable fruits and vegetables. Our goal is to empower communities who lack access to fresh food stores and/or experience barriers in purchasing fresh fruits and vegetables with an opportunity to run a self-sustaining market offering affordable prices and high quality fruits and vegetables.
Organizations and community groups that run markets soon recognize the incredible potential markets have for community building and addressing food security. However, Good Food Markets are designed to serve a need in a community and not be a for-profit program.
FoodShare South Carolina provides microgrants to priority communities as well as a planning kit with basic resources to start a Good Food Market. Good Food Markets are then operated in subsequent weeks from the revenue received on the previous market’s sales.
We currently have a Good Food Market operating at Your Dollar Sto’ at 3017 Farrow Rd, Columbia, SC 29203. Swing by and check out the great stuff going on in that neighborhood!
