Urban Garden Market brings fresh produce to South Bend

Posted:

The Urban Garden Market opened up for the first time this season Saturday. This year they've partnered with the St. Joseph County Minority Health Coalition in order to address a "food desert" in South Bend.

By coming together the two groups hope to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to an area of the west side of South Bend that they say doesn't have easy access to healthy foods.

Karl Nichols of the Minority Health Coalition said that the market provides a great place for healthier options.

"It's not gonna happen going to your corner stores to try to be healthy cause they don't provide healthy items, healthy options.  So this is a way to make it convenient for the community."

The Urban Garden Market will be open in its new location every Saturday through October 19th. They are still looking for vendors. If you are interested please call them at 232-4234.
