Who is New Roots, and What is a Fresh Stop Market?
New Roots is a non-profit organization igniting community power for fresh food access. Fresh Stop Markets (FSM)—New Roots’ main initiative—are run by volunteer leaders in a grassroots food justice movement that operates from the belief that fresh food is a basic human right. New Roots helps to orchestrate the markets in tandem with our community leaders. FSMs are volunteer, community-driven farm-fresh food markets that pop up bi-weekly at local churches, community centers, and businesses in fresh food insecure neighborhoods. “Shareholders” are not just “customers.” They are the volunteer leaders that run and sustain each and every FSM.
Shareholders commit to pay two weeks ahead of time, on an income-based sliding scale, for a “share” of produce. A share is a selection of nine varieties of seasonal, local, organic produce you’ll pick up during the scheduled two hour “pop-up” you choose, at your choice of eight different Kentucky and southern Indiana Markets in the Louisville Metro area. Each FSM pops up biweekly in the same location for the 22-week growing season, from June through November. Shareholders are pooling their resources together in a form of cooperative economics, building enough buying power to purchase at wholesale prices from the farmers, and even influence which seeds they will plant for next year!
Fresh Stop Markets are about Community

Please call 502-509-6770, ext. 0 or email info@newroots.org for information on how to order shares for the 2020 growing season which kicks off Tuesday June 2nd, 2020 in the Shelby Park/Smoketown Neighborhood.

  • At every Market, we will use COVID-19 safe practices to pack your share. A volunteer chef will host an online cooking demonstration, offering vegan, sugar-free, healthy, scrumptious samples and recipes for the very same vegetables and fruits that shareholders bring home.
  • There is a diverse, family reunion atmosphere at each FSM, and favorite recipes are always welcome. If you would like to become a one of our volunteer chefs, please give us a call!
Every market needs Volunteers!
Fresh Stop Markets run on volunteer power. While New Roots does not require every shareholder to volunteer, we do strongly encourage everyone to volunteer, even if it is for one hour for every market, a few hours for one market pop up, etc. It is important to New Roots and the other shareholders that every volunteer also purchase shares for pick up the day of their market. Please write to info@newroots.org or call 502-509-6770 Ext. 0 for more information on volunteering.
  • The shareholders’ financial commitment ensures that farmers don’t face the same degree of risk as with traditional farmers’ markets
