New Mexico Growers:
We’d like to help make 2016 a successful year for you, and our community by
creating a system that eliminates waste and ‘unuse’ of valuable local produce grown here in our arid desert environment.
What happens to your fruits and veggies after the farmers’ markets and other existing channels have bought up what they will?
If you could unload the remaining abundance in one fell swoop, getting in exchange tax deduction or a fair price, would you do it?
Whether it be transformed into an inspired food product, or a delicious meal to feed some who is hungry, we want to make sure that all of what’s grown here is as cherished as it should be.
We would like your input… Is there an over saturation of certain produce at the farmers’ market? What do you often have left over? What time of the year? What would you like to see done with your produce?
Join Gina Riccobono from Delicious New Mexico and Robert Hoberg, Manager of the Downtown Grower’s Market and share your thoughts.
This idea only works if it works for you . . . our growers!
