About this project
Atwater Village Farm Market believes that:
NEIGHBORHOOD = COMMUNITY = CITY = ENVIRONMENT
Our market will evolve into a community-meeting place. Choices at Atwater Village Farm will allow for a healthy lifestyle to be sustained or developed through our love of sharing knowledge. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to purchase fresh, organic local produce at an affordable price.
The Slow Food Movement combined with local, organic and sustainable food philosophies and the ever-increasing presence of farmers market shopping is booming across the country. Consumers are looking for high quality products combined with a local shopping experience. Atwater Village Farm’s alliances with local farmers, artisans and affordable gourmet pre-packaged food providers will provide the sophisticated, educated consumer with convenience, quality and value.
Atwater Village is a small community beside the LA River in Northeast Los Angeles. The corners of our streets used to be populated with small markets which were not only a place to get your groceries but where you met your neighbors. Over the years these markets have all but disappeared. We aim to bring back this vital part of the of local landscape.
Funds recieved via Kickstarter will go to the following:
Building up our market and establishing our place in the community: Construction to the market space, purchase refridgeration, food storage, and preparation equipment, licensing and legal fees. We also want to be a hub of the community, and will be starting programs with our schools, and community groups to teach, and support local farming, eating locally, and seasonally.
