Farmers Markets and Food Deserts
Great first day at the West Side Farmer’s Market! Thanks to all who came out, bought some veggies, did a little screen-printing, and talked about West Virginia’s local agriculture movement. Food deserts are growing problems in both urban and rural areas as we become disconnected with the things we eat and have less access to fresh produce. This USDA sponsored farmer’s market is hoping to change that on the West Side of Charleston.
Props to the awesome board members who planned the event, the oh-so-intelligent consultants we worked with on this project, Kate Nielsen for the beautiful custom drawn illustrations, and all the amazing vendors for making this happen! We loved teaching passers-by how to screen print, and happy they could take their very own print home with the market’s initiative to promote dialogue.

Everywhere, but especially Charleston, needs more spaces that give thanks to people who work hard to do good things. Makeshop was born from the idea that this space needed to exist, and it needed to be accessible. Artists, makers, dreamers, and doers have all come together to make this idea a real thing. The empty space at 611 was gutted. It was empty, and it’s emptied each day, to make room for the next creative soul to give it life. People (your neighbors, your friends, and you) have filled it with incredible work and experiences. We may have created the physical space of Makeshop, but you ran with it and made it everything we have hoped for.
