the project

¡Que Rico Market! works to expand access to fresh, affordable foods in the heart of the Bronx, equip neighbors in food advocacy and to build a downstate -upstate food system. We equip local stakeholders to enact a community plan to build economic, health equity, and greater safety. We accomplish this through workshops, organizing, small business support and neighborhood development projects.  

This year we will run the Market from June until November, conduct an oral history food project at Guess Senior Center and give bi-weekly workshops at local churches, community centers to increase resident engagement. Our locally sourced produce comes from small BIPOC farmers, community gardens and GrowNYC. Each farmshare is curated to provide seasonal and organic options for city dwellers.

We started the farmer's market last year 2022! Check out our previous campaign to see how far we've come! ioby.org/project/mapes-avenue-garden-rebuild
