The Staten Island Parkhill Community Market

The grand re-opening and ribbon cutting ceremony of the Park Hill Community Market will take place on Saturday, June 1, 2013, 11:00 am, on a tree lined space at the corner of 140 Park Hill Avenue and Osgood Ave, across from the Holy Trinity Ukranian Church. In addition, [HealthPlus-Amerigroup], Josephine Marino in collaboration with Island Voice Inc. will be sponsoring a Health Expo on site, on the same day.

The Park Hill Community Market is a project that came to reality through the hard work and dedication of Bobby Digi of Island Voice Inc., Oretha Bestmen of SILCA (Staten Island Liberian Community Association), Minnie Graham of Empowerment Zone Inc., Chrissida Howard and Al Peters.

The new market space is strategically located to attract multicultural communities. The Park Hill Community Market will serve as a place of commerce for handmade arts and crafts,  locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables.
The market will provide a glimpse into the rich multicultural heritage that flourishes in the Park Hill neighborhood. Park Hill is the home to the largest Liberian population in America, dubbed “Little Liberia”. Organizers, sponsors and the community hope the “Market” will put the Clifton/Concord neighborhood on the map as a cultural and touristic destination.

The market space was generously donated thanks to Uni-three Investments Corp.

Special thanks to: CORO New York Leadership Center, Jamilah Belgrave and Larry Blackmon of the Department of Parks & Recreation, and the Park Hill residents for your support with the Park Hill Market Place.
