“We’re excited to offer a healthy resource to the Montclair community,” said Mirza of the Indoor Market. “The Market at the Old Mogul will provide healthy food at an affordable price, access to health education, and great music.”

Independent Farmers from the area will bring their finest goods to the Old Mogul Theater, the oldest theater in Montclair, says Mirza. His family has owned the building since the 1980's and he anticipates the indoor market being the first of many unique additions his venue will provide to the community.

“In addition to the food, every week the Market will host wellness and health professionals to educate the public about different health topics including how diet can improve diabetes, heart disease, obesity, arthritis, thyroid disease, and other wellness options and opportunities,” shared Olivia Whiteman, a wellness coach and one of the Market coordinators.

Mirza says that SNAP, WIC and vouchers will be accepted.
