food culture - apple street market| ONLY 300 MORE OWNER SHARES NEEDED!

A

pple Street Market only needs 300 more owner shares and $200,000.00 to access the Cincinnati Development fund which will allow construction to begin on Northside’s first grocery store cooperative. Northside

resident/volunteers are hard at work with Cincinnati Union Cooperative to do so. Once that funding is in place, Apple Street Market can open within the following year! PROJECT ACCOMPLISHMENTS : • Raised $313,000.00 • Formed a Cooperative Board and created bylaws • Incorporated as a co-op • Signed up over 700 community owners • Identified a general contractor • Agreed to AWG as the store’s primary distributor • Worked with local Northside architects to complete Apple Street Market’s design and layout • Completed the necessary feasibility and business plan for investors

ADDITIONAL EXCITING DEVELOPMENTS FOR THE MARKET: • Northside resident Heather Sturgiil was elected as the New Community Owner Board Representative for Apple Street Market. Heather has been a tireless advocate and volunteer for the market since this effort. • Northside Bank gifted $5,000.00 to CAIN to help with subsidized market shares for low income residents who want to be owners in Apple Street Market. That works out to a little more than 50 shares for low income Northside residents! • Apple Street Market will be tabling at the Northside Rock n’ Roll Festival at Hoffner Park and also featured as part of the annual 4th of July Parade. • Look for Apple Street “Greets!” this summer at your favorite Northside

hangouts. Volunteers will be tabling on summer nights as the street scene revs up for summer action, working hard to promote the market to both visitors and local residents. • Metrocards for the bus - Anything Metro sells will be available at Apple Street Market, complementing the new hub Metro is creating for Northside’s business district. MORE INFO: Join us at the Northside Farmer’s Market on Wednesday (4-7pm), or at Happen, Inc. on Tuesday at 7pm!
