A place where the spirit of convergence happens




The Crossroads Café will be a kitchen and café that is cooperatively run by: chefs, artists, vendors, farmers, community members.



The Crossroads Café will:

  • Allow co-op members to prepare their products for sale in a commercial kitchen
  • Incubate small entrepreneurs and be a rentable commercial kitchen
  • Sell local products and healthy food in the cafe
  • Host “pop-up” events, feature an outdoor grill and seating area, and serve coffee, tea, fresh juices and more
  • Be a community gathering space
  • Create economic opportunity for our local community.


Crossroads is





The Crossroads is home to Phat Beets Farmers Market and Food Justice Collective.  Phat Beets does amazing work in our community. Phat Beets supports local organic farmers, hosts health and food justice workshops and is a voice of equity and social justice.  The Farmers Market is every Saturday from 10am-3pm.  You can always sit in on an interesting workshop, find the best prices on produce and other specialty items and listen to great music.  Our vendors feature cuisines and specialty items from all around the globe.  Crossroads will sell many of these foods.

In the past four months we have taken an empty building and gotten it SO CLOSE to being a kitchen and cafe. We redid the floors and walls. We built a secure storage unit. We restored our stove and hood. We fixed the plumbing. We built a beautiful wood counter top and mosaic wall.



What’s next:

We need multiple refrigeration systems,

We need stainless steel prep tables

We need equality commercial equipment; a juicer, an espresso machine, and more!

We want create a beautiful outdoors seating area for our community to gather
