The Coit Road Farmers' Market & Green Triangle
The Coit Road Farmers' Market & Green Triangle Project is a collaboration between The East Cleveland Growth Association, The Coit Road Farmers' Market, and Food Strong. The Green Triangle will be a new Healthy Lifestyle District anchored by the farmers' market. The Coit Road Farmers' Market will be reconstructed into a 2-level fresh food and produce market. The new design will include space for fresh and healthy food cooking classes and demonstrations. The Green Triangle will transform the area around the farmers' market into an outdoor healhy lifestyle district with shops and businesses all geared towards supporting healthy living. There will also be space for residents interested in urban farming to grow and harvest fresh produce which can then be sold at the farmer's market. So, local growers become local seller, supporting the local ecomomy.
