This summer, the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy has been
working with the City of Minneapolis to develop solutions to food
insecurity, specifically in the Phillips neighborhood. From this work
has come 5 new farmers market sites, connections between these markets
and food shelves, and an emerging food policy task force.

In this email, I invite you to come shop and\or spread the word about
these beautiful new spaces. Below are the times and locations of our
partner markets and a special invitation to our West Bank Market,
featuring some local music this Friday to finish off your work week. I
hope to see you all there and I encourage you to contact me with any
questions and requests to become involved.

food right  in the neighborhood, along with North Country Coop arrive
to provide food to the thousands of nearby residents. The market is
one of the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy's small scale
markets to that have been created to provide fresh and healthy food in
areas with poor access.

Please join us Friday, September 1st from 2-5 as we have two special
guests. Jacob McKnite, a local folk musician, entertains us from
3:30-5. See and hear him at Also,
community health workers from Minnesota International Health
Volunteers will have a booth and information to assist us in leading
healthier lives.
