More than a market

How do you help a community feel more connected, whilst providing access to healthy food at a fair price? The answer – open a grocery store. The People’s Community Market in West Oakland is funded by the community and investors, who in-turn keep some of the profits. Once it’s built, the market will provide jobs, educate families about healthy living, and provide a space for people to get together. A cornerstone for this Californian community.
