Cully Farmers Market
An exciting turn of events has transpired with our Farmers Market. Cully Community Market is joining forces with Thursday’s Old Salt Market to become Cully Farmer’s Market – an affordable farmers market with local healthy food. We are moving into the heart of 42nd Ave business district and will be located outside of Old Salt, Roses, and Rocket Pizza. The season will still be June through September but will change to Thursdays from 4 to 7 PM.
If you did not know already, Cully has a growing urban farm population. Our Cully Farmer’s Market is unique in that we will be hosting neighborhood-grown produce. In addition to local farming, we are creating a market that promotes neighborhood cottage industry. Through our Community Table and our Emerging Business Booth we are providing tangible ways for our neighbors to showcase there up and coming businesses. If you create art or crafts, grow or produce something you should consider having a booth and selling your wares at the Cully Farmers Market.
Our Market is committed to finding culturally diverse entertainment while providing space for neighborhood musicians to be heard and supported by their community. If you are a musician and would like a chance to perform for your neighbors, you should apply to play at the Cully Farmers Market. From 5 to 6 PM we will be hosting a Neighborhood News Hour where we are committed to getting the word out on what is going on locally. There are many ways large and small to volunteer in this neighbor driven project. Look under the Volunteer Activities section to find a more detailed description.
Please email Myo at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to have a booth at the market or volunteer with the project.
