One Market & Eatery, NOW OPEN!

One Market & Eatery is NOW OPEN!

1316 Vail Ave.

Middletown, Ohio

One Market & Eatery was formed with a group of people that saw a need and an opportunity.  The food insecurity rate is need and the opportunity are centered around hunger.  Hunger for food and hunger for connectedness.  The first type of hunger is easily measured.  The food insecurity rate in Middletown is a staggering 32%.  ​

The community is looking for a new way to give and we are providing that for them.  We are now serving 2 purposes. We are serving a community that is in desperate need of quality food products and we are an avenue for people to give back to the community in a different way. We use two approaches at our building on Central Ave next to the old studio theater.  One approach is the food truck, which is getting quality food to people and the second approach is the Micro-Market that will be located inside our property and will give the community access to healthy fresh produce and other fresh food options using the “pay it forward” model.

We have strived to get food to the community via different avenues and have succeeded on a small scale.  We are ready to expand our efforts and move to a bigger and better system.  By incorporating the “Pay it forward” model and using grade B produce and moving into a different property we will be able to reach more people and help rescue some of millions of pounds of produce that is wasted every year which in turn helps the environment.

The combination of the Food Truck Pod Concept and the micro-market in the same location will allow us to become a destination and product uniquely known to the downtown Middletown area.
