A new Dollar General Market located in the Jacobsville neighborhood of Evansville opened at the beginning of March to provide residents with access to fresh food and produce.
The market, located on the ground floor of Forge on Main, celebrated its opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by community officials, including Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke.
The project is a collaboration between Echo Housing House Investments and Dollar General.
Officials called the ceremony a milestone and stated that the new market will provide much-needed service to the area, which has been considered a food desert.
The DG Market sells everything a supermarket would, with prices comparable to a Walmart Neighborhood Market.
Customers can purchase meat, dairy, vegetables, fresh produce, frozen food, and more.
The new market is the second DG Market in the tri-state area, with the other located in Henderson.
