Meet the Makers: Food Vendors and Placemaking at the Bixby Farmers Market
Unleash the Power of Community at the Farmers Market – Hear Vendor Stories and Collaborate on Making the Market the Heart of the City!
Come and join us at the Thursday afternoon Bixby Knolls Farmers Market to sample some of our favorite vendors and hear from Chef Chad of Battambong BBQ and Kerrina Sanchez of Farmer K Homestead. We will be discussing the challenges and opportunities that food vendors face in our city, as well as learning about their experiences and journeys to success. But that’s not all – we will also be exploring the concept of placemaking and how it can be used to create a vibrant and welcoming community hub at the Farmers Market.
From beautification efforts to providing comfortable seating and live music, we are constantly looking for ways to enhance the market’s appeal and create a space where people can come together and connect.
Placemaking is all about empowering communities to work together and make public spaces that are both functional and enjoyable. So come and be a part of this exciting movement as we explore the potential of the Farmers Market as a heart of the community!
