The fledgling H Street Community Market could soon get a big boost from an already established food co-op, which is considering either opening a store on the Northeast corridor or investing in the HSCM.

The established co-op’s members will soon be voting on the matter, said HSCM project manager Karine Bouis-Towe, who would not name the co-op because the decision is still pending. She said the co-op has $1 million to devote to the project.

If the co-op decides to open its own store, Bouis-Towe said, the HSCM hopes to work out an arrangement to have members on the store’s board of directors.

The HSCM has raised about $45,000 from 115 members, Bouis-Towe said, which is not nearly enough to purchase property on H Street.

The market also has looked into property on Florida Avenue Northeast.
