Improving Access to Healthy Food in the Eagle River Valley of Colorado
The Community Market is a partnership of Eagle Valley Community Foundation, Food Bank of the Rockies, Eagle County government, Vail Resorts, a number of community non profit groups and other entities that provide local food assistance.
A warehouse in Gypsum (760 Lindbergh Drive #7) is the central operations hub for the program, and a second location was opened in Edwards (69 Edwards Access Road #6) in May of 2020. The program also brings food directly to communities across the Eagle River Valley in the form of pop-up “Mobile Markets”.
Our markets feature a variety of fresh produce, dairy and bread as well as shelf-stable grocery items. We believe that having access to good quality, nutritious food is a right, not a privilege.
EVCF established The Community Market, formerly the Eagle River Valley Food Bank, in May of 2018 as a scalable food security system that has the capacity to respond to immediate and long-term food insecurity needs.
