A New Permanent Location Saves Customers From Playing Where’s Waldo With Lander’s Farmers Market

  • Local Champion: Lander Valley Farmers Market
  • Date Funded: June 13, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $2,915

Established in 2008, the Lander Valley Farmers Market has become an important source of local food and a point of connection for community members. Over its 15-year tenure, the market has often been held in City Park, but sometimes it’s had to move around a bit to accommodate other events or weather. And that’s the problem: Without a permanent location for the Lander Valley Farmers Market, vendors have been unable to create a reliable, returning customer base, and patrons have been frustrated by not knowing where to find the market from week to week. So market vendors and volunteers worked with the city to come up with a solution: A permanent location on Third Street between Main and Lincoln. Local businesses on the block were also supportive. The remaining challenge was to design and purchase signage that makes it easy for patrons to find the market. LOR’s funding will help support those the purchase of that equipment.

This project was fiscally sponsored by the Lander Community Foundation
