SUPPORT YOUTH FARMERS

THIS SUMMER: FRESH VEG FOR SALE IN W. CENTRAL

This year, we're bringing the market right to the West Central community, making fresh, locally-grown produce more easily available to our neighbors. Selling their produce at the market equips youth with customer service skills, connects them with neighbors โ€” and most importantly, gives them the opportunity to show off their hard work.

You can support the market by coming and buying veggies, helping us spread the word, and volunteering.
