From Todd Jameson – President of Slow Food Indy & Farmer with Kathleen Jameson of Balanced Harvest Farm
Dear friends and allies in the quest for Good, Clean & Fair Food,
The 38th Street & Meridian Market opens this Thursday, the hours are 4 – 6:30 pm. This year the market yard has been relocated to the north side of the church next to the children’s playground on the east corner of the property. A new atmosphere, many new and exciting vendors and producers, a new marketing campaign and a renewed sense of community. The late afternoon hours are perfect for people who want to pick up something on their way home, grab a tasty lite meal and enjoy some entertainment after work, and for those that are going away for the weekend and will miss their regular Saturday market.
I’m asking those of you that blog, Tweeter, Face Book etc. to help spread the word about this market. The North United Methodist Church sponsors the market and empowers us to bring Good, Clean and Fair food to an area and population vastly underserved. While the market is surrounded by significant wealth, there are many in the area that lack access to good food for a variety of reasons. We believe healthy fresh food is a birth right and should be available to everyone and I think you do, too. This market is a meeting place, a welcoming environment and a great place to shop.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide in spreading the word!
Eat well & be well,
