Advancing Equity for BIPOC Entrepreneurs at Farmers Markets

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Farmers markets are historically white-dominated spaces that have not always been equitable and welcoming to farmers, food makers, and shoppers of color. As market operators are working to incorporate diversity, equity, and inclusive (DEI) values into their operations, how can they institutionalize practices to make farmers markets more inclusive and representative of the diversity of our communities? We’ll hear from market operators and community organizations working together to provide opportunities for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), immigrant, and women food entrepreneurs and set them up for lasting success.
