Market Day

In the market for fresh food and friendships.

Nurturing the body and spirit

Eating good food makes everyone feel better. That’s why we think all people should have access to fresh fruits and vegetables, in amounts they can use, and at a price they can afford. Coming to Market Day is a great reason to get out and connect with friends.
What is Market Day?

As part of our commitment to supporting positive aging, Covia sponsors over 20 senior produce markets around the Bay Area that sell fresh fruits and vegetables at cost. Each Market Day takes place in an easily accessible neighborhood setting, including senior centers, churches, and senior communities. Many markets host coffee, lunch, or a social hour, giving people even more reason to come out and enjoy the day.

Our markets also have a mission within a mission—they donate leftover perishables to local nonprofits to share the wealth (and health) with others in need.
