Farm Forum #5: Creating a Community Marketplace

February 15 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Tired of corporate grocery and little access to local food? I am! Finding easy, affordable, year-round access to local, healthy food is nearly impossible.

RealGood is trying to solve this problem with a farmer-focused community marketplace concept that creates connection between local farm products and the need for broader access to real, healthy food in Boulder County.

Join us for food and conversation. FREE and OPEN to everyone. Potluck (6-730), Discussion (730-9).

Around 42,000 people in Boulder County struggle to access healthy, nourishing food every day. We invite you to come discuss how thriving local farms can play an important role in closing that food gap, and give us your valuable input on how to make this idea a viable reality for farmer stakeholders

This project is being led by RealGood, a local non-profit with a mission to create a more just and equitable food systems in Boulder County. RealGood’s vision to build a more robust local food system is revolutionary because it enables us to put money back into the ground and support local economy and agriculture.

For this marketplace to work, it needs to be grounded in local needs. RealGood is in the listening and learning phase. Questions abound. As a community, let’s help them achieve their vision and bringing local, healthy food to all.
