Neighborhood-Led Good Food Enterprise Launches in Walnut Hills

Updated: Mar 4, 2022

Mona Jenkins and other co-founders and supporters recently held a launch party to kick-off fundraising for the Queen Mother's Market Cooperative in the Walnut Hills neighborhood of Cincinnati.

Queen Mother's Market is starting off as a membership-based buying club, but will expand to be a member-owned cooperative grocery store and community hub in the next couple years. It will fill a need for access to healthy food in this part of the city, and offer an opportunity for community members to direct the decisions made about the food available in their neighborhood.

Queen Mother's Market is the product of the hard work of Jenkins and other leaders in the community, with support from some of our other partners in Healthy Food Access and Consumption and Farm to Consumer work, including Co-op Cincy and Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation.

Read more about it on WCPO and the Queen Mother's Market page.

And donate to Queen Mother's Market's fundraiser to help the cooperative build a physical store in Walnut Hills!
