Mercado El Sol

Mercado El Sol is a mini-market where families can make a 5-minute appointment to come into the market and fill two bags with the food and products that fit their needs. The market is restocked each day with meat, dairy, fresh produce, canned goods, toiletries, paper goods, and more. This new market is open to the community and completely free! Appointments are needed to shop. Families may visit the market at most once a week. Bring your own bags! Each family may bring 2 reasonably sized reusable bags to fill with any items they want.
