Uptown Toledo Grocery store opens its doors

Toledo, Ohio ProMedica celebrates the grand opening of Market on the Green at the ProMedica Ebeid Institute. The store is a full service grocery store located at the corner of 14th and Madison. It has local produce, meats and dairy products and everything offered at the major grocery stores.

The goal is to serve what is classified as a "food desert", which means that the residents in the area don't have access to fresh produce and other healthy products within a mile radius of their neighborhood. ProMedica is launching the first of these kinds of facilities, which will also serve as job training sites, along with medical care and learning kitchen facilities. ProMedica is focusing on what it calls "community" healthcare, which involves serving people in the communities where they live, not just in hospitals and clinical settings.

Market on the Green, will be open daily from 8am to 7pm and Sunday from 11 to 5.
