Providing a Solution to Serve the Underserved
Springfield, MA – The gateway city of Springfield, MA is known as a food desert due to the lack of adequate food access. Downtown Springfield remains underserved with a grocery store that meets the needs of its residents.
Community members residing and working in Downtown Springfield, Massachusetts will soon have year-round access to farm fresh produce and other grocery items. Agric Organics is opening Farmstore99 – A community-centric grocery store.
The store, opening this Fall will be located at 10 Chestnut Street underneath the Skyview Tower Apartments and will serve as a one-stop shop for all grocery needs to include fresh produce, deli products, baked goods, and more.
