  1. Inspiration from a fellow farmpreneur – Jean Martin “The Market Gardener”

    To dream up East End Market we pulled inspiration from many of the North America’s best markets and food hubs. My urban farming ventures have taken much the same path.

    Jean-Martin Fortier - smiling I recently took a trip to Toronto to meet an inspiring farmpreneur named Jean Martin Fortier, aka The Market Gardener, in hopes of learning a few new techniques.

    The two workshops I attended put on by FarmStart.ca were incredibly inspiring.  First of all to be surrounded by 60+ fellow and future farmers all focussed on learning to grow sustainably and profitablly was a powerful experience.  Second, Jean-Martin was a refreshingly affaable and informative presenter.  Through a miraid of pictures and stoires, he walked us through his own decade-long farming journey.

  2. Make your Money Count

    The Audubon Park Community Market has been occurring every Monday since 2009. Market Director Gabby Lothrop ensures that the market offers only the finest of foods that have been grown, raised, caught, or carefully made right here in Florida, emphasizing freshness and encouraging sustainable practices through touring each farm or facility.

    If you have had a chance to visit, you have experienced how this gathering transforms a parking lot into a celebration with all of the sights, smells and sounds of a lively community. While the market has an obvious impact on the community’s wellbeing, we wanted to know the less obvious impacts of the market on the local economy. With Market Umbrella‘s SEED (Sticky Economy Evaluation Device) Study, we were able to measure the financial impact of the Audubon Park Community Market on the vendors, local businesses and the greater municipality. 

    In October and November of 2012, A Local Folkus and some helpful volunteers completed two nights of surveying market goers about their spending habits.  Taking the average of the two reports, we found how much money is spent on average at the market and at nearby businesses. Using those numbers, the SEED measurement tool determines the impact of successive rounds of re-spending the initial dollars within a region, or the multiplier effect. The larger the multiplier, the “stickier” the economy. See how the market is impacting our region’s economic development below! Click the image to enlarge.

    The Winter Park YMCA and East End Market are partnering to help you commit to getting fit by making local groceries more convenient to bring home! Every Tuesday from 9am – Noon, we will set up a mini-market at the YMCA to showcase our merchants’ products. From produce and organic juices to provisions and fresh-cut flowers, you’ll be able to find it there!

    Moreover, you’ll get to meet some of the talented merchants coming to East End Market and learn more about their products and how to prepare them at home. So, lace up and race down to the YMCA every Thursday morning to stock up on some fresh goods, and squeeze in some time at the gym!
