PRICE HILL (FOX19) -

In an effort to promote healthier eating, Findlay Market opened a new farm stand in the parking lot of Roberts Academy in Price Hill.

A grand opening for the new spot was held Tuesday, located at 1702 Grand Avenue.

The farm stand, made out of an old shipping container, will be permanently located at the school to help bring local produce to families in the community. Volunteers and Findlay Market staff will run the new stand.

Area residents will be able to shop at the stand every Tuesday from 3 to 6 p.m. throughout the summer.

Findlay Market says they hope to expand this program to other local schools.
