Bickett Market Organizes the New Five Points Farmers Market

Five Points Farmers Market is a neighborhood farmers market that is located in the heart of Five Points.

Our Mission is to get the neighborhood community more involved with supporting local sustainable goods through our market. Supporting local is in high demand these days, and we thought we could influence this movement by starting this neighborhood market.

This market was put together with the vision of getting this community more aware and involved in the local food scene. We want to educate people on the importance of supporting the local farmers, and fishermen. There is great opportunity in the city to really be a front runner in the local foods movement; we are very excited to be a part of that.

The people who are responsible for this exciting new market are the following: Jean Martin of Nofo, Jonathan Botta of Bickett Market, Jason Stegall of SouthPort Seafood Company/Bickett Market, and Aly Young of NoFo. This group has worked especially hard to insure the success of this market.
