Farmers' Market Economic Development VISTA
 
 
 
The ultimate goal of this project (after 3 years) is to have built an expansive framework that trains our community of farmers' markets to be thriving, professionally managed, and synergistic; so they in turn, can actively support our local farmers, food makers, and consumers. In year three, the VISTA will continue building capacity of farmers' markets as well as small farmers and food makers, including those who are Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) in the areas of marketing, financial literacy, and other business supports to build capacity of farmers' markets and vendors to serve their community's needs for fresh local produce, protein, and cottage food. The third-year emphasis will be on implementation, evaluation, and sustainability. Another priority continues to be building trusting relationships with the region's food system stakeholders. The VISTA will help implement the Farmers' Market Academy and evaluate its success. The VISTA will continue to support the FM360 metrics collection project through data collection and coordination. The VISTA will also continue the Advisory Committee to continue building capacity for sustainability.
