Residents in Enon Ridge and Fountain Heights neighborhoods can now purchase fresh, Alabama-grown produce at R & M Convenience Store. The Urban Food Project team onboarded its 9th participating retailer to its Farm to Corner Store network this month. Owners Rodriques and Brianna Cowans offer convenience foods, a small selection of frozen meats and vegetables, and now sell produce in partnership with REV. The Urban Food Project team provided on-site training, equipping the Cowans with skills to successfully maintain and merchandize their produce display. This ambitious young couple aims to diversify their stock to include more grocery items, providing heathier food options for the community.
R & M is located at 1403 3rd Street North. Follow the Cowans family’s business growth on Facebook and Instagram.
