Why We Do It
The lack of access to fresh produce for many Northern Kentucky residents is an unavoidable, daily reality. In Newport, there are multiple convenience and corner stores within our neighborhoods, yet the closet supermarket can take residents upwards of 25 minutes to reach on foot. This is what a “Food Desert” looks like – systemic barriers to accessing fresh fruits and vegetables that support a healthy diet.
The Neighborhood Farmers Market will bring fresh, locally grown produce into our community, with convenient locations at multiple Brighton Center buildings in Newport and one in Florence. All families and communities deserve to have access to healthy and affordable good, whether it’s grown in their own plot at Newport Community Gardens or purchased at the Neighborhood Farmers Market.
“When we alter a local food landscape to offer more convenient & affordable opportunities to access spinach & blackberries vs. chips & candy, healthier choices are a natural result. People respond to real food. That’s why we have several convenient Brighton Center locations Monday- Friday— fresh vegetables and fruit are now within reach. ” -Zach Price, Market Manager
