HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Oakwood University opened its new Oakwood Farms Market Wednesday morning on the corner of Sparkman Drive and Adventist Boulevard.
The store will help provide food in the area known as a food desert. A food desert is an area with little to no access to affordable, healthy food options.
The store will also create jobs for people in the community.
Profits from the store will support Oakwood University students.
