Corridor Farmer’s Market
This is where StarkFresh began. It all started with the Corridor Farmers Market in 2011 when another local agency reached out for help with their fledgling farmers market in North East Canton.
In 2017, instead of continuing with the Corridor Farmers Market, we decided to focus our energy on expanding our Mobile Farmers Market initiative, which reaches far more community members than the stationary market was able to reach.
Backyard Gardening Program
In 2012, this program saw 50 families from the North East Canton area successfully learn how to grow their own vegetables right in their own backyards.
The success of this program is ongoing as many of the families from this program have gone on to teach others what they have learned at the Urban Teaching Farm and at other workshops throughout the area.
Monthly Film Series
In 2015, after hearing from Market attendees and community members, we started a monthly documentary film series. The evening consisted of a community discussion and film screening.
In 2017, instead of holding regular, monthly screenings at a central location, we decided to assist with hosting additional film screenings and discussion at partner agencies locations, tied to specific programs and events.
