Partnerships and Pop-Up Markets

How do you ease the gap between convenience and accessibility for families to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables? A pop-up market right on school grounds! The Community Sector has formed partnerships with the Baldwin County School System and local farmers to bring fresh produce directly to the students and their families. The new markets rotate between schools and Early Learning Centers.

Mr. Sweat, a Wrightsville, GA farmer shared stories about his farm experiences and gave tips on how to choose the freshest fruits and vegetables. The children, parents and teachers loved the demonstration and bought all of Mr. Sweats produce!
