To inspire a self sufficient community that supports and protects Black farmers and entrepreneurs.
There’s no doubt that eating fresh produce can enhance your health. We ALL need food to survive. Let’s work together to change the perception that eating healthy is only a luxury for some. The Black Farmers’ Market is an inclusive, fun, and community centered marketplace.
Shopping at the Black Farmers’ Market allows you to not only keep dollars circulating in our community but it gives you the opportunity to support Black farmers. Black farmers were once the heart of our food ways. It’s time to reshape our agricultural systems, starting by protecting and supporting them.
Chances are the produce you purchase at the Black Farmers’ Market was picked only hours before it reaches your hands! Unlike big supermarkets and corner stores, you get to meet and talk to your farmer or rancher in person. At the Black Farmers’ Market, you build relationships as you shop for fresh, affordable produce.
“I love coming into a space where I feel like I belong. I don’t feel like the minority. It just feels like shopping with family every two weeks. And with COVID having us physically distancing ourselves, I’m glad they figured out a way to continue this event.”
