The Markets Fare at East Beach was formed in 2012 to create local, seasonal marketplace in communities where there is a need in Norfolk, Virginia. To continue this tradition, The Markets Fare has partnered with the East Beach Company and East Beach Neighborhood Association to benefit its residents and the surrounding neighborhoods.
MISSION STATEMENT : To provide the community with Sustainable, Measurable, Affordable, Responsible, and Trackable (SMART) fare in a seasonal marketplace which creates business opportunities for local farmers and producers. The Markets Fare endeavors to – educate families about the benefits of knowing where their food comes from. – encourage buying locally to sustain and perpetuate Virginia's farming families. – support the community through awareness of eco-friendly practices used by the vendors, and to promote the advantages of such practices for the home. – expose customers to the nourishing taste and quality of fresh food.
