Great for the Community. Great for the Farmers
The way we make fresh food available for all is through the Fresh Stop Markets — farm-fresh food markets located in fresh food-insecure neighborhoods. These markets pop up every two weeks during the growing season, June-November, at churches, businesses and community centers. Shareholders pay on an income-based sliding scale, two weeks before each pick up date. Each bag contains nine varieties of fresh, local, mostly organically-certified vegetables and some fruit: $6 if paying with SNAP; $12.75 for limited resources; $27 for higher income; and, $43 for Food Justice Shares. Everyone gets the same bag regardless of what they pay. Eight Fresh Stop Markets currently operate under New Roots’ umbrella: seven in Metro Louisville, one in southern Indiana. There also is an independent market in Hazard, Ky. Click here to order your shares.
