About

MESSAGE FROM CO-PASTORS SHIRLEY AND GEORGE BURKE: Fresh Stop Markets have given Coke Memorial UMC a bridge to interact with the Smoketown community in an innovative & practical way. This partnership  is bringing hope, wellness and inspiration to an area that was a food desert.  The newsletter, samples from the chefs, tips & recipes shared broadens the mind & enhances the taste buds in creative food preparation. The affordability of the beautiful produce proves to be an economic win-win for the farmers & consumers alike.  Our church members are excited about the vitality it has brought to our church campus as we meet a real need & new faces in the community.  As co-pastors, we are thrilled to live out our call to serve our church and the community that our church is a part of. We are building new relationships with community leaders & residents who care about the future of Smoketown in particular and our fair city in general. To God be the glory!

The 2018 Smoketown Fresh Stop Market will “pop-up” every other Tuesday beginning June 12th. To place an order for shares of seasonal produce, click below (credit/debit orders only), call 502.509.6770 (if payment method is debit/credit or SNAP), or drop off cash to YouthBuild, 800 S. Preston Street, 40203. Cash may also be dropped off at the New Roots Office at 1800 Portland Ave. ​
