East Side Market: From Food Desert to Oasis of Glenville Neighborhood

Featured Audio

If you're a regular listener of Sound of Ideas then you've heard us discuss the subject of food deserts.  These are areas in which residents do not have easy access to healthy, fresh food and instead  usually have to rely on convenience and fast foods -- making healthy eating a challenge  Now, a new project is about the break ground that will bring an oasis of healthy options to the Glenvlle neighborhood. That's where plans are in works to bring back, in a new mixed-use form, the East Side Market.
