The Urban Oasis Project (Oasis Market)
The Oasis Market has been working for the last four years to develop a viable local and regional food system that can also stimulate new economic opportunities in our region.
Our mission is to create a sustainable platform in the Erie community that emphasizes a direct connection between our regional producers and consumers. We aim to provide a diverse array of farm products, arts, crafts, and prepared foods, all produced within the Erie region.
We are happy to say that we currently sell products for over 35 local producers and house three (and counting) local businesses.
Programs and Services
The Market is a unique way to simultaneously address food deserts and the need for outlets for local producers to sell their products. For lower income residents, The Market provides better access to diverse and nutritious foods with expected improvements across the board for health outcomes. For entrepreneurs, The Market acts as an incubator for startups and small businesses by reducing their start-up cost and operational risk.
We also offer a variety of workshops and classes for adults and children for gardening, healthy cooking, entrepreneurship, lifestyle and more.
With your help we will be able to expand our outreach in the community and further develop these programs that we are able to offer to the public.
Thank you sincerely for your support!
