About Rockwood Food Stories

“The Rockwood Community Cookbook” supports the Gresham Redevelopment Commission’s work to develop a market hall for the Rockwood Rising redevelopment site at 18535 SE Stark St., the former Fred Meyer site.

Plans for the market hall call for fresh produce and prepared foods to help meet a longstanding need for more healthy food options in the neighborhood, plus local entrepreneurship and job training opportunities.

For more information about tenant opportunities at the market hall, call 503-618-3208.
