City Greens Market

Launched by a group of women frustrated by the lack of accessible grocery stores selling organic, local food in Southeast St. Louis, City Greens Market is a nonprofit small grocery aiming to support local agriculture and ensure all community members can buy affordable, good food.  The Market sells all items at cost to its members, who pay an annual membership fee based on their household income or join for free in exchange for volunteering at least an hour per week.  The nonprofit also offers classes and demonstrations focused on cooking nutritious, affordable meals.
