There's a Farm Fresh barely a mile away on 25th and main. This is going to look like crap and go to crap asap . It would be better if they rehabbed the Food Circus at nine mile and Creightone rather than build something new in this spot

Yes, desert.

Fairfield Court is 1.8 miles from the Farm Fresh by foot. The USDA defines a food desert in urban areas as a community residing more than one mile from a supermarket or large grocery store.
