  • Mission driven (nonprofit/501(c)3 or social enterprise)
  • Community-based
  • Committed to expanding food access, building health and wealth and/or alleviating food insecurity
  • Led by and/or works closely with community members most impacted by limited food access
  • Majority of food purchased with discount goes directly to community members most impacted by limited food access
  • It might be difficult for this organization to source from The Common Market without this discount in place


Community Farm Stands

To bring a farm stand to your organization, please contact our outreach team at gasales@thecommonmarket.org.

 

A farm stand is a temporary, on-site set up of fresh local foods for sale at your hospital, school or community organization. The Common Market Farm Stand is a completely flexible program where you can choose when your farm stand runs, how often, and what local products are best suited for your community members.

The Common Market Farm Stand program can:

• Help your organization plan and organize an on-site farm stand

• Supply seasonal ordering and pricing tips and promotional materials to get the word out

• Deliver fresh, sustainable, local products directly to your location!

As a partner in Wholesome Wave Georgia's Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program (FVRx), The Common Market Southeast is helping to incorporate local food into a unique, multifaceted intervention that changes the way we approach health, medicine, and nutrition.

Through the FVRx, doctors provide participants with prescriptions for weekly shares of fresh produce at Grady Hospital. The evidence-based food-as-medicine model provides affordable access to healthful foods to prevent and treat chronic diet-related illnesses, all while supporting sustainable food systems.

Georgia Grown 

The Common Market Southeast is a proud Member of Georgia Grown. The program, powered by the Georgia Department of Agriculture, is desired by business and consumers who want to buy and promote Georgia’s locally grown products.
