Business Spotlight - June 2022

Riverwest Farmers Market Edition


Greeting Friends and Neighbors:


Farmers markets play a pivotal role for small farmers and producers along with residents providing access to fresh produce and other products. The Riverwest Market, held on Sundays from 10 - 3pm, June through October, on the 2700 block of N. Pierce is a great example. Hosting nearly 30 full season vendors, and many various rotating vendors, there is something for everyone. Also, be sure to check out the variety of community resource tables that we will rotate throughout the season!

Check out more information about the Riverwest Market here.

 

Pao Garden

Pao Garden is a multi-generational family-run farm located in Fredonia. Ka Pao and Kor, along with their daughter Sabrina, farm the land and bring a large variety of seasonal produce and flowers to the market. For over 20 years Kor has been sharing the bounty from her garden. They have recently expanded their 6 acre farm with another 6 acre plot nearby, and are bringing back their onsite mini market stand for folks who drive by their home.
