August 18 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until October 27, 2022
FARMacy Farmers Market
Join us every Thursday evening from 5-8pm for our local produce market.
Victory Gardens International’s VICTORY MARKET – MOBILE PRODUCE STAND provides access to produce year-round from local farmers with the goal of improving health and ensuring good nutrition in underserved areas identified as food deserts, which are those areas defined as lacking reliable access to sufficient, affordable, nutritious food.
Victory Gardens International was founded by Jonathan and Crystal Nazeer to spearhead community redevelopment based on urban farming, food production, food access and job creation in low wealth communities. Victory Gardens International seeks to help the ongoing issue of food apartheid by offering fresh produce to lower wealth residents. By learning how to take care of the produce being grown, residents also learn how to cook with their new fresh foods, and get the opportunity to get educated on healthy foods.
Victory Gardens will help to showcase the communities we serve as a potential model for providing local produce to residents, businesses and the creation of jobs in distressed areas and the inclusion of support programs for persons with barriers to employment.
