New in 2018, the Urban Roots Community Market is where our community can buy healthy, fresh, local (where possible), and whole foods at affordable prices.

We are excited to open our doors in Madison Square as a place where healthy foods can be a staple kitchen item in the homes of our neighbors. The Community Market is located inside our education center: 1316 Madison SE, Grand Rapids MI 49507.

We accept: Bridge Cards (SNAP), Double Up Food Bucks, WIC, Senior Market Fresh, Cash, and Credit/Debit.

Summer hours (April-October): Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, 12pm-7pm

Winter hours (November-March): Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, 10am-5pm
