"Glenwood Sunday Market truly represents the diversity and interests of the community and is a real example of us putting our money where our mouths are, so to speak. The market makes such a point of local artisans and farmers using responsible, sustainable practices and it gets the absolute, enthusiastic and consistent support of the neighborhood and beyond."
"My family has discovered the benefits of buying local food and the Glenwood Sunday Market is a great place to get it. The food is fresher than anything in the supermarket so it is tastier and more nutritious. It is also good for our local economy and better for the environment because it's not being shipped from the other side of the world. The market brings together our community and makes us feel like true neighbors. It's fun to run into people you know and catch up on all that going on. It's a win-win-win!"
As a vendor at the market, I love that (it is) approachable and affordable for folks to visit farmers markets, and spreading visibility.
