Food for Thought Market Types

The Food for Thought Markets are dedicated to creating a more equitable local food system, in response to the demand for local growers and producers. We encourage everyone to participate in one of our markets, and welcome all producers, from farms to backyard growers. We are proud to say that all participants of the Food for Thought Markets are local vendors, who only sell handmade, homemade, or homegrown items.

The Food for Thought Markets take place year-round, with the Summer Market taking place every week from June through September and the Winter Makers Market, which takes place twice a month from November through May.

 
SNAP Token System

The Food for Thought Markets offer a SNAP Token System to SNAP users, to encourage the purchase of local, healthy items. This is a win-win for everyone, in that, healthier alternatives become available to those in need, while strengthening our local economy, and increasing the customer base of our local vendors and business owners.

SNAP users simply visit the Food for Thought Info Booth, run their card in exchange for tokens, and use them on approved purchases with the market vendors.

 

Summer Market

The Food for Thought Summer Market takes place on Tuesday nights from 5pm-8pm throughout the summer at David Street Station. Items that can be found at the Summer Market include fresh produce, baked goods, body care products, home decor and so much more! We also have mobile vendors who provide different dinner options and sweet treats for market-goers to enjoy. The Splash Pad and live music also provide a fun and relaxing vibe to the market for all to enjoy. We accept SNAP benefits at the Summer Market, offer a Double Up Food Bucks program on fresh produce, and fun activities through our free POP Club for Kids booth.

Winter Makers Market

The Winter Makers Market was started in the fall of 2014 to increase the opportunity for vendors throughout the winter months. Since that first year, we have moved to our forever home in the Good Food Hub (the old Powder River Veterans Club) at 420 W. 1st St., and have a variety of vendors from jams and jellies, to baked goods, body care products, local honey, handmade items and more.

Mobile Market

Wyoming Food for Thought Project will be rolling out our newest project, the Mobile Market, soon! We will now be able to bring the market to those who may not have had access to one in the past, including food deserts. And guess what? We will be able to accept SNAP and Double Up Food Bucks with the Mobile Market, so anyone can buy from it!

Follow us on Facebook, to stay up to date on the progress of the Mobile Market, as well as where you can find it.

Online Farmers Market

Now you can order and pickup the items you love most!

The Food for Thought Online Farmers Market features many items that we have grown and made at our Program Center and Urban Farm. The produce in our products was either grown in our community gardens or rescued at our markets from other vendors who would have disposed of the unsold items.

 

We offer fresh and unprocessed produce, various canned goods, Food for Thought swag, garden supplies and more! Click below to shop now.
