Food, What?! Gault Farmers Market

This fall we partnered with the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS) to run a farm stand at Gault Elementary. Every Wednesday for 6 weeks FoodWhat crew member Luis Medina sold organic produce and flowers to parents and teachers as they picked up their kids. In order to make the vegetables accessible to everyone, we sold the produce at subsidized prices comparable to the local conventional market. We also accepted EBT. Gaining more momentum each week, the vegetables flew off the tables.
