The Corner Grocery: Creating Community

By City Visions,  KALW

Can the corner grocery store bring prosperity to a community? Consumers are making more trips to drug-, club and dollar stores, and taking precious community money out of their neighborhoods. City Visions talks with Bay Area businesses that are recirculating the food dollars to bring health and wealth to local residents, farmers, and artisans. Guests interviewed are:

Brahm Ahmadi -- Founder, People's Community Market, co-founder People's Grocery;

Sam Mogannam -- Owner, San Francisco's Bi-Rite Market and co-author of "Eat Good Food: A Grocer’s Guide to Shopping, Cooking & Creating Community Through Food";

Bill Fujimoto -- Consultant, former co-owner and operator of Berkeley independent produce retailer, Monterey Market.
