We’re excited to be presenting at the “Farming for Profit and Stewardship” Conference this January 18th and 19th in Lansdowne, Virginia, hosted by one of Arcadia’s partners, Future Harvest CASA.
Our workshop will discuss “Evolution and Innovation” in farmers’ markets, and will be co-presented by one of the Mobile Market’s funders, Wholesome Wave. Arcadia’s Mobile Market will be on-site at the conference as an innovative example of how to establish a farmers’ market in a low income, low food access neighborhood.

The two-day conference will have six tracks for a variety of audiences, including “Beginning Farmers,” farmers wanting to “Scale Up,” “Grass-Based Systems” of livestock husbandry, members of “Local Food Communities,” “Fruit & Vegetable Production,” and “The Business of Farming.” A full list of the workshops can be found here.
