    With support from the Abell Foundation, our Double Dollars program allows farmers to sell produce in neighborhoods where farmers markets do not exist and could not be supported.

This program is economical for farmers and consumers and bridges an important gap in food access. We published this report to document the continued growth and success of the program. We look forward to creating strategic partnerships throughout the city to continue to expand upon this model and develop systems to create lasting change in our farms’ neighborhoods.
