New fresh produce market opening in Youngstown - WKBN

Officials cut the ribbon Tuesday morning for the Glenwood Fresh Market in Youngstown.

It’s been a long time since people on the south side of Youngstown and neighborhood communities have had a place to get fresh fruits and vegetables right in their own neighborhood. Mayor Tito Browns remembers when they could.

“I knew when the produce came there was gonna be fresh produce. My grandmother would go out. My mother would go out. The community would come out,” Brown said.

The store, located at 2915 Glenwood Ave., will offer fresh produce free of charge for residents who meet income guidelines and have underlying health conditions, saving them from having to travel to Liberty or Boardman to buy what they need at today’s rising prices.
