Germaine Jenkins is a woman on a mission: She’s built a fully functioning urban farm and grocery in Chicora-Cherokee, a neighborhood considered a food desert. Her vision is to provide fresh foods, employment and educational opportunities for her neighbors. The full-service grocery store (Tues.-Sat., 10 a.m.-7 p.m.) accepts SNAP benefits, cash, and debit purchases for fruits, vegetables, prepared foods, baby products, and other items provided by local business affiliates, including MUSC Urban Farm, Fields to Families, Sow Seasonal Farm, Sweetgrass Garden, and Lowcountry Street Grocery. Current crops include collards, kale, and cilantro, and they recently completed building a chicken coop. Fresh Future Farm is a non-profit farm, so tax-deductible donations are always accepted.
