About the BIPOC Farmers Market

Southside Community Farm hosts a monthly BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) farmers market as a way to make healthy, fresh food available in our neighborhood and to promote local craftspeople and farmers of color. The market is the first Sunday of the month, May-October right next to Southside Community Farm. Besides our own fresh produce, you’ll also find many other local Black and Brown vendors at our EBT-accessible market. Our previous vendors have included:  Tierra FertilSoulful Simone FarmMelanin Rising Co.Tha Madd BakerWolfMother MedicinesBurton Street Peace GardensShiloh Community GardenWadadli Dessert OasisXaka LeonThe AppaLatin FarmsteadCora’s Garden, and many more. This event is open to everyone.
