Our (virtual) farmers market

I was inspired to create this program after a Valhalla High School student, Magnolia Saalman, came to us with the idea to create a marketplace where her community could have easy access to local farmers products. We worked with her to create Magnolia’s Marketplace to sell Field Goods products to families.The program simply requires students to organize a weekly pickup location with volunteers and to promote their farmers market. There is no financial investment. I see Our Farmers Market as way kids can to lean into their passion for healthy food and a healthy environment, as well as fulfill community service requirements safely. As the mother of a high school student, I know how important it is for kids to learn business skills, bring value to their communities and, now, limit social interaction. Our Farmers Market makes it easy for kids to help community members enjoy access to fresh, healthy food and appreciate the importance of supporting local agriculture.
 
I ‘d appreciate your thoughts on this program
