We believe that to be an effective leader at growing an equitable, healthy, and sustainable local food system, we need to reflect those principles internally. It all starts with a strong foundation. We are a sustainable organization that invests in its vendors, employees and volunteers.
Embracing equity as a guiding principle, we encourage employment applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds and from underrepresented groups. We believe that when we represent a diversity of perspectives and life experiences, we can be most responsive to the needs of our vendors and shoppers, and better reflect the communities where our markets call home.
For our vendors, we are a marketing organization that attracts shoppers to marketplaces where small businesses can prosper. We are committed to providing business acceleration opportunities such as expanded marketplaces, educational workshops and a diversified shopper base.
