“Success breeds success. Activity brings more activity.
Revitalization of Indian Head requires continued investment.”
Bringing a new independent grocery store to Indian Head has been no small feat. If it were easy, it would have happened 25 years ago.
Oasis Fresh Foods Market is succeeding because we’ve rallied the support of what feels like the entire town. Perhaps most importantly, we’ve built an Advisory Council that includes some of the smartest, strategic thinkers in our area. They’ve been absolutely essential to this effort.
They are passionate about Indian Head, its residents and its prospects for future prosperity. We want them to share their stories about why they feel compelled to help bring Oasis to our food desert town.
Matthew M. Martin is the chief financial officer and executive vice president of Energetics Technology Center, Inc., headquartered in Indian Head. He has been among the biggest champions of this effort from the very beginning.

What made you want to join the advisory team for the new grocery store in Indian Head?
I live and work within the community of Indian Head. I see the need for increased business activity outside the base gates. The community has been “hungry” for a community grocery store for over two decades. When I was asked to join, I jumped at the chance.
