Today we had two speaker's from the Marinwood, Novato, and Sonoma Farmer's Market.
Agricultural Community Events established in 2010, operates 12 farmers’ markets in the North Bay, 3 of which are located in Marin County (Fairfax, Novato and Marinwood). Each market is connected into the community it serves. Executive Director, Kelly Smith and Market Manager, Karen Marks shared how the farmers markets they operate serve the community beyond bringing local fresh produce and foods through programs offered to low income community members and seniors, like market match. We learned how in turn those programs serve the farmers and businesses at the farmers market for a stronger economy as well as a healthier community
