“When learning about the Black Farmers’ Market, I was excited to have a space where I could purchase products from Black owned businesses. I love coming into a space where I feel like I belong. It just feels like shopping with family every two weeks. And with COVID having us physically distancing ourselves, I’m glad that they have figured out a way to create community through markets.”

– Phoebe G.
