The Public Market is a non-profit year-round consignment farmer’s market and natural foods store, with a dual mission:
1. To grow economic opportunities for local farmers by establishing a sustainable , year-round outlet for local food where none exists.
2. To be a space for community health for all, by eliminating a USDA-classified food desert and promoting local and healthy food across the Ohio Valley.
The Public Market is a project of Grow Ohio Valley, a non-profit Food Hub established in 2014, currently operating urban and rural sustainable farming sites, a hub that aggregates and distributes local food through a CSA, FARMacy and Mobile Market, and education programs for the Ohio Valley community.
