With the market season just one week away, it’s a great time to work with us to make it a success! We’re looking for volunteers to help the market run smoothly and folks who’d like to join our Market Committee, to help create the vision for what our market will look like.
Would you like to get involved? Do you have ideas about what the Douglass Market should be?
Please email Mike at Market@fairfoodmatters.org
We’re looking for folks who would like to come out and perform for our customers and vendors this season. It’s an opportunity to make some friends in the Northside while supporting our work of providing access to fresh food, promoting food sovereignty in the neighborhood, and bringing people together around food.
If you’re interested, please send me an email at: Market@fairfoodmatters.org
Hello Douglass Market community,
I am Mike Hoag and I will be taking over for Erica as the new Market Manager. So it is my pleasure to announce that we are now taking vendor applications for our 2014 season. This year, we’re committing to hosting entertaining, educational community events on each market day, so if you know of an event or presenter you’d like to see at the market, please let us know.
And, in addition to SNAP, Double-up Food Bucks, Market Fresh, Senior Fresh, and WIC Fresh Coupons, this year we will be launching our own currency, the Douglass Dollar, which will allow our community to support our vendors with pre-sales and support our mission of improving food access through direct donations. Customers will be able to purchase Douglass Dollars for themselves, give them as gifts, or donate them to food assistance funds.
Fair Food Matters is seeking a new program manager to continue the Douglass Farmers’ Market in 2014 and beyond. We will accept applications until 5pm on February 26. Click on the following links to view or download the related documents:
