On the last weekend in June, two new farmers markets opened in Greensboro and High Point, NC. Operating under the name Bountiful Land Food for All Farmers Market, the markets at 701 East Washington Drive in High Point and 1901 McConnell Road in Greensboro are a project of the Guilford Urban Farming Initiative (GUFI), a recipient of a “Cultivate Resilient Communities” grant from the NCA Center for Communication, Community Collaboration and Change (CCCC) at UNCG. The Greensboro market is co-sponsored by the North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP. The goal of the markets is to create an urban space where farmers can sell their produce while providing fresh and healthy food in areas where shopping options are limited.
