A few weeks ago the Fulton Street Farmers Market (FSFM) launched the Our Goodness Is Growing Capital Campaign to improve its facilities (adding wheelchair-accessible restrooms and covering the open-air shed area) and to make the Market a year-round operation. So far the FSFM has raised $1.5 million towards its $2.0 million goal. Construction is expected to begin this fall, and the new Market will open its doors to the public on May 5, 2012.
As a local business, we share the FSFM's interests in creating a comprehensive and sustainable local food system, supporting locally-owned family farms and promoting economic development in our neighborhood business district. I am asking you to consider making a donation to the FSFM Campaign and to encourage your friends and family to do the same.
