Also, The Motor Avenue Farmers Market has developed an urban garden program! With this program, our intent is to promote the health, synergy, and self-reliance of this local community. The program will have many specific and measurable benefits to our community and we strongly encourage your involvement in whatever capacity you see yourself fitting in! The program features a total of five gardens (with room for more), three located at local school campuses and two along Motor Ave.
To check out our urban garden program or additional information about the market, vendors and recipes, go to www.motoravenuemarket.com. You can also visit our facebook for events and special deals!
We look forward to seeing you at the market!
