Nick (Community Foodworks) and Mary Alice (Dreaming Out Loud) will share the work they do at local non-profit organizations that operate urban farmers markets and increase access to fresh, locally grown food. The evening will take a larger focus on the concepts of food justice and food sovereignty and include a discussion of how farmers markets operate and serve as platforms for community organizing.
