You recently helped us raise enough funds to save the farmers’ markets this season. Now we’re turning our focus to the future of the farmers’ markets. This Giving Tuesday, we’ve set a goal to raise $2,500 to help jumpstart the 2023 Howe Meadow farmers’ market and secure a strong start to the season for the vendors. 

This year, the Countryside Farmers’ Market at Howe Meadow welcomed and average of 1.605 customers per week supporting 75 vendors. Those are tremendous numbers for a farmers’ market and it clearly shows how much you value and want to support local, nutritious foods, farmers, and small businesses.

Will you donate today and stand with farmers and small businesses, and champion local food?
