Heart of the City Farmers Market has been awarded $100,000 from the USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program to relaunch our nutrition education outreach program, including market tours and offsite workshops in the surrounding low-income Tenderloin community to educate about small farming and how to afford healthy, local, and sustainable produce on a limited budget. 200 workshops and 48 market tours are planned for the next two years. If you want us to visit your community organization or school, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Heart of the City Farmers Market will also be holding monthly cooking demonstrations at the farmers market to teach strategies to cook with produce for residents of the Tenderloin's SRO housing stock without access to a kitchen. We've also teamed up with the San Francisco Public Library to facilitate their monthly "Biblio Bistro" food demonstration series at Heart of the City Farmers Market.
