The first year of Carver Neighborhood Market has been an incredible ride! We've served customers who are delighted to have access to fresh food and produce. We've worked with an upbeat team of young people gaining work experience in our store. And we've welcomed guests from all over who are interested and excited about this solution to the food desert issue that plagues so many communities.
To celebrate a successful first year, we had no choice but to throw a big party! We invited all our friends and customers - not to mention Freddie the Falcon - out to the store for a sunny Saturday of fun.
Our South Atlanta Bike Shop staff showed off their smoothie bicycle.
And the Skinny Chef offered an incredible cooking demonstration thanks to our partners at Georgia Food Oasis.
We enjoyed a visit from the Atlanta Falcons cheerleaders and Freddie the Falcon!
It was a wonderful day of community and celebration that truly exemplifies the ways Carver Market has impacted our neighborhood and Atlanta as a whole. Thank you so much to all who came out to the party and those of you who continue to support our work creating a food oasis.
