Glenwood Fresh Market Completes First Month of Operation

Monday, May 2, 2022

The Glenwood Fresh Market (Market) completed its first full month of operation. Since the market opened it has enrolled 1,348 individuals as members, 646 households and 1,191 individuals have been served, and $25,829.67 in produce (totaling more than 30,000 pounds) has been provided. 
YNDC has partnered with Vantage Aging, an organization that helps adults 55+ receive job skills training and re-enter the workforce to place a participant at the Market to assist with day-to-day operations. The Market continues to survey members and has begun to adjust produce offerings based on member preferences and has added several new items over the past month in response to requests, including ginger, green tomatoes, and spinach. Work is also underway to begin health screenings, cooking demonstrations, and nutrition education activities at the Market in partnership with Mercy Health.
HUGE thank you to the market's primary supporters including: USDA, Mercy Health Foundation - Mahoning Valley, and The Healthpath Foundation of Ohio!
