Mission Statement

To inspire healthier living and cultivate a sustainable, vibrant food economy by providing impactful education and resources accessible to all.

Description

The Market is a mixed-use facility that brings together local food production, education, and entrepreneurship opportunities. Our indoor facility features a 23-vendor market hall with two full-service restaurants, while dozens of artisans line our outdoor market shed during special events. We offer several exceptional spaces throughout the site, including a rentable Incubator Kitchen, rooftop greenhouses, a large second-floor greenhouse, and the nation’s first kid-friendly demonstration kitchen (you have to see it to believe it). The Market is LEED Gold certified, features a green roof, live walls, geotherm wells, a rain garden, and plenty of other innovative, sustainable features.
