Sponsors Experience

 

one-of-a-kind exposure

Foodshed Alliance's focus is to strengthen the Farmers Markets in Buena Vista and Salida, Colorado. Strong Markets benefit local farmers, producers, artists, consumers and our collective communities.

Our markets are hubs for connecting and driving local commerce. Foodshed Alliance has been organizing and managing markets in Chaffee County since 2007, and our markets have helped retain over $2 million dollars within our local economy.

Cultivating sustainable and secure regional food systems is a community effort. Thank you for your support, we look forward to working with you.
