Forsyth Farmers' Market-Program & Development VISTA
 
 
 
The mission of the Forsyth Farmers' Market is to promote understanding and participation in a local food system that supports sustainable production and increases access to local products. The Forsyth Farmers' Market (FFM) was founded in 2009 by six women who came together with the intention of supporting their common vision of a local food system that is good for the health of all people and the environment. The FFM was conceived and planned to provide all members of Savannah’s community a welcoming, inclusive place to purchase local food and address food access issues. The Program & Development VISTA will assist staff to build capacity for the Farm Truck 912 project. This mobile farmer's market brings fresh, healthy food to low-income neighborhoods with otherwise limited access. Farm Truck 912 accepts and doubles SNAP/EBT benefits and offers health and nutrition education to customers.
