The Edwards location of The Community Market, a food bank operated by Eagle Valley Community Foundation, will be closed this week as the organization moves to a new location in Northstar Plaza.
The new location is in the heart of the Northstar Plaza now owned by Vail Health, which will eventually become a behavioral health and community resource hub.
The Community Market in Edwards will reopen in its new location at 429 Edwards Access Road, Suite #A202, on Dec. 21. The Edwards location will continue offering no-cost groceries from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
“We are so thankful to Vail Health for our new home in the Northstar complex,” said Anne Redden, programs and operations manager for The Community Market. “This large, dedicated market space helps ensure that we will be able to provide our community with the same vast array and abundance of fresh produce, protein, and dairy groceries (as well as shelf-stable pantry items) being offered at our primary location in Gypsum.
