Cincinnati's first neighborhood "Farmstand" opened Tuesday at Roberts Academy in Price Hill.

The farmstands are a partnership between Findlay Market and local groups hoping to encourage healthy eating habits by the convenience of a neighborhood location. 

"We want this to be a convenient place to buy everything they need," said Tracy Power, resource coordinator of the community learning center at Roberts Academy. They plan to be able to offer meat and other cold foods soon.
