Before you start a farmers' market,
make sure you have these things covered.

01

STAKEHOLDERS

Do you have a group of loyal church members (3 to 5 members or more) and/or community stakeholders, who want to transform their lives by eating local healthy food grown by local farmers, in particular black farmers, and who will work to build the market developed and see it through the various growth stages?

02

LOGISTICS

Do you have a location for the farmers’ market?  

 

Will there be a place for storage of tents, tables, banners, baskets, market scale, A-frames and other market supplies & equipment at the proposed location? 

Contact us for more information!

Thanks for submitting!

03

OUTREACH

Is there an already expressed interest in a farmer’s market at the location?

Have you spoken to your larger church members and those beyond your church memberships about the farmers’ market? 

04

MEMBERS

Do you have access to local farmers, urban gardeners, bakers, makers, etc.

05

FUNDING

Do you have an operating budget to use for the farmers’ market?

 

Is there already operating capital set aside or will you have to raise funds or write a grant?
