About Us

The Fresh Market at UMCH is the newest initiative by United Methodist Community House designed to offer affordable access to healthy, locally sourced food in an equitable, non-charity setting, all while supporting Michigan growers. Founded in 1902, UMCH has a long history of taking a holistic approach to meet the evolving  needs of our neighbors in the Southeast Community neighborhood. The Fresh Market is a celebration of the diverse, vibrant community we inhabit.

We believe communities thrive when good food systems are prioritized.

Good food systems are defined as:

Fair: food that is produced without exploitating anyone in the production process 
Green: food that is produced with environmental sustainability in mind
Healthy: food that is nourishing and allows consumers to thrive
Affordable: food that is accessible to all
