In collaboration with The Farmers Market Coalition (FMC), Black food system leaders and experts recently released a Toolkit to help farmers market managers improve the farmers market experience for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities.

The Toolkit is intended to help farmers market managers put anti-racist concepts and practices to action in their farmers markets. The Toolkit’s creators argue that the resource is needed to address various problems in society, including climate action and economic justice.

Working on the Toolkit “was an opportunity to bring in my roots from the food system into this space as well as an expanded understanding of how community functions and what’s needed for creating places of belonging,” Sagdrina Jalal, lead facilitator of the Toolkit, says in a recent webinar.
