The Intertribal Agriculture Council is pleased to announce we will be launching a Mobile Farmers Market in the Great Lakes Region in late spring 2013. Based in the Duluth, MN area, this project will employ a fuel-efficient cargo van to create a regional food distribution network. The Mobile Farmers Market’s two main goals are 1) expanding Tribal food producers’ market access and 2) increasing the availability of fresh, healthy, and traditional food in Tribal communities, especially those in remote areas.
This project is seeking local partners in Tribal communities. Where there is interest, it is seeking to work with existing markets and provide support to start new ones. More information will be available in the near future.
