So It Goes News, September 26, 2012
Village Market, Portland’s only nonprofit grocery store, celebrates one year of success serving residents of the New Columbia neighborhood and surrounding North Portland communities. Village Market is a community-based project, part of the larger Village Gardens community food initiative, in the business of providing healthy food options to local residents that are affordable and convenient. Staff, volunteers and neighbors are excited to celebrate the market’s first birthday during the week of May 28.
Check out the video below to learn more about all that Village Market does to build community:
In a recent interview with KBOO Talk Radio host Lisa Loving, Project Manager Mychal Tetteh summed up his last nine months at the market in saying, “from my personal experience as a lifelong Portland resident, [New Columbia] is one of the best places in Portland, bar none.” Village Market invites you to visit the store (located at 4632 N Trenton St) and discover for yourself a sense of community you won’t find anywhere else.
