Public markets and farmers markets are bringing new economic vitality to
thousands of communities and farms across the country. Come learn about
a new funding opportunity through the Ford Foundation that is taking a
fresh look at markets as a tool for job creation, community economic
development, and bringing new life to lower-income neighborhoods. Learn
also about other funding opportunities, exciting collaborations, and
about where to find the best information on starting up markets or
reinvigorating an existing market.   

Taste a sampling of farm fresh foods and wines direct from the Roanoke
City Market in Virginia and other markets around the country, including
Crescent City Farmers Market at the historic French Market in New
