All neighbors are welcome to sit at our table.
The door is open. A seat is waiting if you are hungry, or if you have a hunger to help our neighbors and make a difference in this community. We hope a good meal in a warm and welcoming environment will help to feed one’s soul. Come on in!

Good is in the hands that serve.
We cannot function without volunteers who give time and talents—the heart behind our mission. We continually pray for volunteers to help make good happen in the community by being the hands and feet of Jesus. All are welcome regardless of faith.

Togetherness will satisfy your appetite.
At One Market & Eatery, our neighbors come together. Neighbors from across the street or across town. New friends. Families. Those in need of help and those with help to give. All come together to enjoy a good meal and the pleasure of good company.

All may eat with love on the menu.

Our menu is affordable at $6–9 per meal. Pay what you can afford. Pay the full amount of the suggested price, or even a little more to “pay it forward” and help to feed your neighbor. If unable to pay, give your time in service as payment for a meal.

Don’t be a stranger. Say hello. Introduce yourself to neighbors around you. Take time to get to know your neighbors and take part in the One Market & Eatery's commitment to eliminate hunger, grow relationships, and celebrate community.

Top it off with a “to go” of happiness.
With a core ingredient of love and a dash of friendship, our hope is that you’ll end the meal with a “to go” of happiness—a happiness that follows you all the way home.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is One Market & Eatery?

 

OME is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization that uses a pay-it-forward model to provide delicious food and rich fellowship opportunities to our neighbors in the Middletown area, while contributing to the economic growth of the central business district as we run the micro-market and eatery.


How do I pay for a meal?

We recognize that times are tough and as such, have embraced a “pay what you can afford” concept. If unable to pay for a meal, you can give time in service as payment. If able to pay, a suggested price of $6–$9 will cover the cost of a meal. Any donations over the suggested price will “pay it forward” to help cover the cost of a neighbor’s meal.


How do I volunteer?

We cannot function without volunteers who give time and talents—the heart behind our mission. Our volunteers fall into two categories:

Those who volunteer in order to provide a meal for themselves and/or their families.
Those who volunteer to help as staff and assist in providing meals to those in need.

One Market & Eatery benefits from the time, talent and special skills of volunteers. While we encourage volunteers to sign up online in advance, anyone may stop by during business hours to see if help is needed.
