- Provide healthy food for all
- Be a champion for the environment
- Be a pillar of the community
- Be loved by the people
You’ll be able to shop for whole-grain breads, sweets, and gourmet items including olive oils, and handmade cheese. The market also contains ready-made foods such as Mexican, Thai, and Andean cuisines. And you can usually find handmade crafts and home care products.
