November Market Monthly Partner:
Sarah Angst Greeting Cards
Earlier in the year, Market Executive Director Marti visited Bozeman, Montana to explore their agri-culinary network to see what a local food system in a different region of the U.S. looks like. In her travels, she came across the art of Sarah Angst and was so visually captured by Sarah’s boldly-colored nature illustrations that she wanted to share them with folks in our corner of PA. We’ll be highlighting some of her gorgeous cards but check our her website for artwork, stickers, and more.
Food for Thought: Expansion is officially on the horizon for Edinboro Market!
We are sooooo excited to share that our grant writing over the last eight months has paid off and we are moving ahead with a $1.3 million dollar expansion! In our new Edinboro location (within walking distance of our current space), we’ll double the retail shelf and cooler space for small-scale farmers and food producers and create a learning space focused on cooking skills for home cooks, and business skills for new and existing farmers and food makers. Our new café will offer dishes that highlight local ingredients and the attached commercial kitchen will be a rentable shared-use facility for food entrepreneurs. Thank you to the Appalachian Regional Commission, E.C.G.R.A., the Erie Community Foundation, and private investors for helping to make our vision a reality!!
If you’d like to support Edinboro Market’s vision of a vibrant local food system as an economic driver in northwest Pennsylvania, or know someone who grows or makes great food intentionally to feed our community, please get in touch via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), phone (814-266-2993) or just stop in.
