“From the two years I’ve been here, I’ve met [people] as far as India, as close as home” – Sean Bernardo

Part of the mission of the Detroit Food & Fitness Collaborative is to develop ways to ensure that everyone in Detroit has access to affordable, locally grown food. Detroit Community Markets are neighborhood locations where residents and visitors can do just that.

Most of the sites are farmers’ markets, but the program also includes mobile produce trucks, farm stands, a year-round produce store, and food box programs.
