Aya Community Markets is a DC-based social enterprise aiming to reinvent the farmer's market in "food desert" and "low-access" communities. In addition to a variety of local, sustainable, and organic produce, the Markets feature holistic health information booths and demonstration booths for activities such as yoga, cycling, and capoeira.
Aya Community Markets aim to bring green living to underserved communities, while also offering services such as business development for farmers and vendors, and health screenings and seminars. The Markets make local produce even more affordable with their Aya Bonus Bucks program, which matches EBT, WIC and Senior Farmers Market Voucher purchases up to $10.
Aya Community Markets is a social enterprise designed and implemented by DC non-profit Dreaming Out Loud.
