Davidson Farmers Market Seeks Community Support – Help if you can!

Davidson, NC    Here is an email from Market Manager Justin seeking donations to keep the market viable for the future of our great community.

In 2008, the Davidson Farmers Market (DFM) started with the mission to connect shoppers to local farmers, purveyors, and artisans to access fresh local foods and goods made within a 100 mile radius of Davidson, NC. For over a decade, DFM has grown from a dozen vendors to over 40 small businesses providing a variety of fresh produce, proteins, dairy, breads and baked goods, prepared foods, and health and wellness products. Our loyal shoppers have increased over time, and we now serve over 600 shoppers a week.  The market community represents the beauty and inclusion that make Davidson distinctive, and shoppers and vendors have kept the market going all these years.

But nobody could have predicted the challenges DFM and our community would face this year, and now we need your help to continue the market’s work and to keep Davidson’s community strong, safe, and healthy.

When DFM shut down in March because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors committed to the safety of vendors, shoppers, and the community, while at the same time keeping our shoppers fed and our vendors in business. We have offered online shopping and off-site pick-up locations as a temporary solution; we’ve also been meeting weekly to plan how DFM will reopen, operate, and continue to expand its mission.

The first thing DFM did was waive all vendor fees for the 2020 season, to give every vendor financial relief and the ability to continue participating at the market. The second decision, to not solicit sponsorship support from small businesses as in years past, came from the same commitment to reduce the financial burden of those hard hit by mandated closures. These two decisions will impact DFM’s operating budget and ability to expand programming, but they come from DFM’s core mission and values. Without our vendors, there is no market.  Without our Main Street businesses, there is no Davidson. We are a community, above everything else.

DFM has a new plan and has added to our mission. We will continue to provide a safe, healthy space for shoppers to access fresh local produce and support small local businesses.

This summer we will reopen with:

  • New shopping opportunities including pre-order pick-up;
  • Three new vendors;
  • Increased programming to allow EVERYONE access to food; and
  • A system and layout that keeps everyone safe.

This plan requires DFM to pay for:

  • New equipment including tents, tables, and hand sanitizer stations;
  • Signage and barriers;
  • Vendor masks and cleaning products, including shopper amenities; and
  • Additional staff.
We need the help of our community and loyal shoppers to make this happen. We are asking that you help by making a donation of $10 to save our 40 vendors and keep DFM continuing for another 12 years.

Your $10 will keep 40 small businesses operating at the Davidson Farmers Market, continue shoppers’ access to fresh local foods and goods, and strengthen DFM’s operations to ensure our community is thriving and healthy every Saturday for years to come.

Generous community members who give $100 or more will be recognized as Market Sustainers in upcoming DFM newsletters.

Help us TODAY so we can be back together again listening to the talents of Dylan Underwood on the Stage for Stephen, sipping our morning brew from Summit Coffee, eating Bleu Barn Bistro breakfast burritos, and sharing the beautiful produce and goods we bought. Give $10 to save 40 and let’s get back to our Saturday morning tradition and community.

Happy eating,
Justin

Davidson Farmers Market This Week – Memorial Day Cookout?

Davidson, NC   This Week’s Farmers Offerings and fundraiser.

From Justin, Market Manager – Wow! The DFM community showed up yesterday when we launched our Give $10 Save 40 campaign. We have a goal to raise $25,000 in order to reopen the market with new equipment, sanitizer stations, cover the cost for our 40 vendors to participate, and hire additional staff for our new market procedures and programs. You can read more about the Give $10 campaign here.

In less than 24 hours we are at the halfway point of our goal! We can’t thank our shoppers and supporters enough. If you would like to support DFM and help us reopen, please donate here. We know we can reach our goal by Memorial Day and then get to work reopening!

Small Business Update – Mcleod Organics – Fresh Swordfish and more – Just stopped by and excited

Davidson, NC     Stopped by Bradford Store on Highway 73 today and picked up some fresh swordfish steaks for kabobs tonight.

IMG_0651

The gentleman working the fish area (in a mask – thank you) said they get their fish in on Wednesdays and it sells out quickly.  I took a picture of their offerings and he suggested ordering Saturday or Sunday so they can add your order on top of their order.

IMG_0607

I am sorry I have not shopped more at this local gem.  I took a video of their outside are and I know I missed a lot, but they are a local business to support if you can.

 

I’ll let you know how the swordfish kabobs turn out.   Stay Safe!

Here is their card so you can contact.
