The Columbia Heights Community Marketplace builds and strengthens the Washington, D.C.–neighborhood's culture, community, and economy through local, sustainably produced food, entertainment, arts, and community service. It does this by educating and empowering community members, especially youth, to learn about and gain employment in local food, farming, entertainment, and community service. The result is a community full of healthy people eating healthy food grown near home and while putting their skills to work building a strong, local economy.
