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.ย
