YOUR STORE OF THE
Your Store of the Queen City incubates sustainable, hyper-local systems of nutritional and economic abundance by nourishing the growth and connectedness of community assets and enterprises.
Collaborators include residents, community councils and business alliances, neighborhood gardens, family chefs, food makers, food rescue systems, hunger partners, small businesses and entrepreneurs, arts and culture groups, service organizations, churches, schools, volunteers and philanthropists at all giving levels.
Our values are sustainability, trustworthiness, and being neighbor-led. We were sparked in 2017 through the formation of an all volunteer, anti-food-desert Neighborhood Action Team in Lower Price Hill (Cincinnati, OH). In 2019 we officially became a 501c3 nonprofit organization to launch a farmer's market and construct our first grocery store.
Your choice to shop in Lower Price Hill is a choice to join our food community with the belief that every family deserves access to nutritional and economic opportunity.
Both of our main initiatives are open to the public. In fact, we rely on building our base of shoppers like you--folks who share our values of fresh, local and ethical retail.
A new weekly outdoor marketplace expanding access to Lower Price Hill's fresh produce, foodmakers, and artisans.
ONLINE ORDERS + CURBSIDE PICKUP AVAILABLE
Your Store of the Queen City utilizes neighbor-based design and leadership to develop these grassroots initiatives.
Our model includes a hyper-local focus on growing Lower Price Hill's own small businesses and job opportunities.
This includes a commitment to supporting resident, woman, and minority entrepreneurship and leadership FIRST.
HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN?
Our first initiatives are grocery related collaborations that began with the 2017 leadership, surveying, and advocacy from Lower Price Hill residents and leaders like the LPH Neighborhood Action Team, LPH Community Council, LPH Neighborhood Alliance of Businesses, ECDI Women's Business Center, LPH Arts Collective, Price Hill Will, Community Matters, Oyler School and Community Learning Center Institute, Santa Maria Cincy (and more).
“It's so exciting to be in this space and time with such cool and amazing innovators. Our planning with Your Store goes above and beyond what we had imagined when we began organizing to bring fresh food back to the neighborhood.”
