Our beloved Children's Garden, once an abandoned lot
Due to the impending inclement weather, we've decided to cancel AVillage's South End Night Market tomorrow, August 19th!
We are currently looking for a permanent rain location within the South End of Albany to host our markets when the weather is too cold or wet. If you have ideas, please contact us at (518) 451-9849 or email@example.com.
We're looking to shake up the South End Night Market a little! If you are currently a market vendor or would like to become one, get in touch with us
At this time we at AVillage Inc., want to establish solidarity with all of those who are committed to anti-racism, equity, and prioritizing marginalized voices and the needs of vulnerable people.
AVillage…, Inc. welcomes all neighbors and community members, groups, organizations, officials to join us in crafting and delivering a collective statement to combat racism, and systemic oppression with outlined demands, action steps, and milestones to track progress. This statement will serve as the barometer for behavior and accountability in our community as well as communicate our priorities and how we wish to engage.

Our neighborhood needs empowerment: worker-owned and worker-managed businesses, streets filled with activity, places where we can gather to share fresh air, healthy food, ideas, and plans. We need to come together, learn together, and use all the available resources to build a neighborhood we can be proud of.
Our job is to bring the tools and resources that we need to make this neighborhood our own. Our work began with demanding access to public transportation and with activities and advocacy that turned vacant lots into gardens. We now seek to build community-based frameworks for environmental, economic, and social justice.
