Fresh Stop Markets

We believe fresh food is a basic human right.

 

 

Join the movement to empower and heal our communities through food and cooperative economics at a Fresh Stop Market Food Justice Workshop. Fresh Stop Markets ignite community power for fresh food access by joining local farmers and community members in a cooperative economy that is led and supported by the people, for the people. We believe that fresh food is a basic human right and communities have the inner potential to facilitate the emergence of justice in their own lives.  At its core, the soul of the work is about being led by people most impacted by food apartheid.

LEADERS!

Fresh Stop Market leaders form teams, according to their individual strengths and passions. In 2017, the Market leaders will form into six different teams. Every Market is always looking for shareholders who want to step up into leadership roles. Our leaders love that they can express their passion for food justice in their own communities, or as allies with neighboring communities, and see the manifestation of their hard work with beautiful, abundant, affordable, local organic food for ALL. All descriptions are subject to change as leaders provide input and work to constantly improve our collective processes. Beginning in late March, there is leader to leader mentoring available through our Fresh Stop Training Institute.
