Supporting local farmers and ranchers, incubate small businesses, increase food access, strengthen the local economy, and cultivate healthy communities.
Good Local consists of juried markets that attract growers and artists from a 150-mile radius of our community. The vendors directly raise, grow, and/or produce what they sell. The market’s staff visits each farm to ensure they are growing what they are selling at the market. No reselling is permitted at the markets. The vendors at this market are carefully vetted so that only quality products are brought to the market.
Simple food chain; simple food choices. the markets promote the health of shoppers, the health of local businesses, and the health of our local food system.
Our successful Lone Star food stamp program makes real food accessible. Good Local believes in being part of the solution to food inequality and hope to increase food access by providing sources of fresh picked, locally grown, produce.
This local farmers market brings food producers to the urban center, creating a new, broader community. Thus bringing people together around food, and that is one of the ageless definitions of community anywhere.
Good Local hosts farmers markets, classes and workshops, a Lone Star program, and events at our farmers markets.
