el mercadito

A free community market, operating Wednesdays, 11 AM - 1 - PM for Gage Park residents.



El Mercadito is a community market that provides fresh produce, hygiene products, baby food, diapers, and other necessities to Gage Park residents for free. 


This initiative began in response to our community being number one in the city for COVID positivity, and unemployment during the pandemic and has been running weekly since March 2020.

We continue to serve Gage Park residents because the need for equitable food access still exists in our community.
