Support Local Farmers!
And Eat Well as a Result!

Here’s the new word for today: locavore. (OK, it’s new to me)

Have you heard of it? It’s a person who consumes local foods which are produced as close to home as possible. Buying and eating local supports a more sustainable food system because true sustainability goes beyond the methods used in food production to include every step that brings food from farm to plate.

FAMU logoWith this in mind, the Woodland Drives Neighborhood Association, Lafayette Street Revitalization Committee and the FAMU StateWide Small Farm Programs have collaborated to provide an organic Florida growers market every Thursday, from 3 pm-dusk, across the street from the Moon. The Growers Market will feature fresh local, seasonal organically grown produce and more.

This market needs YOUR support! Please come by to get your veggies and tell your friends and neighbors!

This project is just one of many in store to make Lafayette Street a vibrant area.

Thank you to some of the people who made it happen!

  • The Lafayette Street Committee
  • Scott Carswell and the Moon for their support
  • Debbie Weber from Talcor for their support
  • Jennifer Taylor from the FAMU Statewide Small Farm Programs
