The Farmers Market Comes To A Close

Red Bird Mission has had a successful farmers market this year! The farmers have reported $5,940.50 of produce sold at the Farmers Market. We would like to thank the Rural Food Security Grant for allowing us to have food vouchers for low income families this year. Not only did they help our community but the farmers also. By giving people the vouchers this helped the farmers to make more money selling their produce. This also helped the low income families in our area by supplying healthy and organic food in their home. We would also like to thank the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program for allowing us to distribute senior checks. A lot of people don’t understand how much it means to the community around here, to get naturally raised and healthy produce without having to pay an arm or leg and to have accessibility, as the nearest grocery store is over 45 minutes away. I’ve had numerous people come up to me, telling me how much the farmers market has helped them and other families they know. I’m looking forward to doing it again next year.

Also Pine Mountain Settlement School came to take a tour of our commercial kitchen. We really enjoyed meeting with them for the first time and look forward to seeing them again in the future. Wishing them luck on their kitchen and excited to see how their’s turns out.
