17th Street Farmers’ Market looking for farmers to fill out survey

Those running the market are looking for input from those in the know.

The 17th Street Farmers’ Market has been playing second fiddle to other local markets in recent years. This situation is likely to get worst before it gets better as the city debates what to do with Shockoe Bottom in relation to the baseball stadium and it’s companion revitalization plans.

Enrichmond will be taking over the market and they’re turning to famers and other fresh food producers to get insight on what makes a successful farmers’ market.

The link to the survey is here and below is the message posted to the 17th Street Famers’ Market.

Dear Richmond: we need your input!

The Enrichmond Foundation is soliciting input from regional farmers and fresh food producers about your experience and preferences with market vending. Enrichmond is preparing to assume management authority of the new 17th St. Farmers’ Market and is committed to reviving this market as a local food and cultural asset. We believe that we will achieve this goal by building strong, lasting relationships with the best vendors in the region.

By offering your input on this survey, you will help us learn more about your needs as a business, so that we can sustain a great mix of excellent vendors in the market.

Click the link to complete the survey and tell us about your business and your farmers’ market experiences. Be sure to leave you contact information at the end of the survey to receive updates about the market’s upcoming developments. Thanks for your help!
