A Fresh Take on Living and Supporting Local

At West 5, we believe that loving yourself means being mindful of the food you eat, how you treat your own mind and body, and the company you keep. You have to nourish yourself in order to be able to nourish others. That’s one of the reasons we created the West 5 Farmers Market. It’s a chance to give to yourself, while at the same time giving back to your community.
