Marketplace@Sprout! provides a year-round sales outlet for farmers and local food entrepreneurs. In keeping with Sprout!'s overall vision to promote healthy community through a vibrant local food economy, Marketplace@Sprout! encourages direct community participation in the food security of the Springfield/Eugene area.
This is accomplished through the facilitation of farm/producer-to-consumer direct sales, the recruitment of locally sourced prepared food vendors, and the coordination of food system oriented educational workshops and demonstrations.
