Alchemist Community Development Corporation connects communities to land, food and opportunities toward a vision in which all Sacramento neighborhoods are vibrant, equitable, healthy and diverse.
The Alchemist team has extensive experience assisting disadvantaged entrepreneurs, making farmers’ markets accessible to low-income residents, and empowering neighborhoods to build community assets through transforming abandoned spaces.
Building on this expertise, the Alchemist Public Market will provide under-served entrepreneurs with unique opportunities to launch their businesses, provide workforce development for workers with high barriers to employment, create an attractive and energetic community gathering place, and provide low-income neighbors with access to quality food and produce from local sellers.
Alchemist Public Market is one of three Food-Anchored Resiliency Hubs within the City of Sacramento to be selected for participation in Local Foods, Local Places (LFLP). LFLP is a federally funded program that supports community-led efforts to reinvest in existing neighborhoods, protects the environment, and improves residents’ health and quality of life through the development of the local food economy.
