What a beautiful year 2017 was at the Midtown Farmers Market! Nearly 50,000 customers came out to support the livelihoods of 75 local farmers and entrepreneurs, we provided access to over $35,000 worth fresh local food to those most in need, and created a vibrant space for neighbors to gather weekly to see local artists on the market stage, eat, shop, and enjoy the richness of our community.
It has been a great year at the Midtown Farmers Market; cultural and special event days have been celebrated, musicians and spoken word poets have moved us, neighbors have convened, conversations, laughter, food, drink, song and dance have been shared, new recipes have been tried, ping pong battles have been won and lost, heat waves, rainstorms and windstorms have been weathered, and heaps of fresh, healthy, local food and art have been bought, sold, and enjoyed by our conscientious community.
