We want your reviews!

One of our most frequently asked questions is "Can I volunteer with Forty Acres?" While we appreciate the enthusiasm, we have to say no. Just like Jewel or Mariano's, Forty Acres Fresh Market is a grocery business and can't accept volunteers.

The best way for you to lend a hand and support the city's only Black woman-owned grocery business is to shop with us and spread the word and encourage your friends, family, and co-workers to shop with us too.

For us, nothing beats the word-of-mouth of a Google review. A 5-star review is a great way to share your love of Forty Acres with the world, and helps us with SEO and algorithms, and all sorts of marketing stuff.

If you have shopped with us, please tell others about your experience by leaving us a 5-star Google review. Thank you!


Two Side Dishes Are Better Than None

This week we're giving you two delicious veggie side dishes in one. Brown sugar glazed carrots bring sweetness and cozy vibes. Brussels sprouts get smashed, crisped in the air fryer and seasoned with nutritional yeast. Both of these sides belong in your side dish rotation!
