Grand Opening – Freedom Market
August 5, 2013
We would like to personally invite you to a project that has been a long time in the making; the grand opening of the Freedom Market on August 8th, 2013. Parade starts at 12:30 ribbon cutting at 1:00 p.m.
The Freedom Market’s goals are to address health disparities, improve food security, promote entrepreneurialism, provide workforce development, and increase the sense of community in the northeast quadrant of Rochester. In collaboration with our many faithful partners this demonstration project called Freedom Market, a complimentary project to our highly successful Freedom School, is poised to accomplish these goals. Our qualitative research from our partnership with the Warner School at the University of Rochester has demonstrated that our process of community transformation is working.
The parade actually begins at Freedom School at 630 N. Goodman St. and it is a 1/2 mile walk (with 100+ children ), or you can meet us at 256 Webster and march with us down to the market at 359 Webster or just meet us at the Freedom Market, whatever works for you.
