Columbia Heights residents enjoy the fountain and the Marketplace

The Marketplace has a new outreach specialist

The Columbia Heights Community Marketplace is happy to introduce our new Outreach Specialist — community food educator and Columbia Heights local, Ibti Vincent! Keep an eye out for Ibti at community gatherings in coming months. Ask her for tips on seasonal shopping and healthy cooking, applying for and utilizing federal nutrition benefits and Festibucks, or the inside scoop on upcoming events at our market — opening day is just 2 months away: Saturday, May 12!

To request information, arrange a time for Ibti to speak with your community group about the Marketplace/Festibucks/healthy eating, or with questions about our program, send an email to
