Stock up for the Season!

The last Grandin market of 2018 is just around the corner! Come see us inside the CoLab from 10am-1pm on Saturday, December 15th for locally-grown veggies, responsibly-raised meats, baked treats, and everything else you need for the freshest holiday feast, all direct from ethical farmers and producers you know and trust. Plus, we’ll have a plethora of thoughtful, original gifts, hand-made with care by members of our local community. Feel good about your holiday shopping: spend your hard-earned dollars with local folks who share your values!

Give the Gift of Local Goodness!

This holiday season, give the gift of ethically-produced, local food! LEAP gift certificates are redeemable at any of our farmers markets (Grandin VillageWest End, and the Mobile Market) for $5 tokens, which can be spent just like cash with any vendor, for any item. The recipient will redeem your gift for something they’ll actually want, use, and appreciate, and you’ll know that your purchase will support a local, sustainable farmer, food producer, or artisan, and those dollars will continue to circulate within our community. This season, GIVE LOCAL!

You can also support vibrant markets and sustainable local agriculture by making a tax-deductible gift to LEAP, or choosing LEAP when you shop with AmazonSmile (shopping experience is identical, except that Amazon donates a percentage of your purchase price, at no cost to you). Thanks for you support!

Join the LEAP Market family! Seeking 2019 Market Vendors

As part of our mission, LEAP provides an accessible, profitable venue for small-scale local businesses, prioritizing local, sustainable agriculture and environmentally-sound, socially-just practices. We’re always searching for the highest-quality local products, and as we prepare for next year, we need your help finding the next generation of LEAP farmers market vendors! Know anyone who might be interested in selling their goods at market? Maybe you yourself have an inkling to add your products to our vibrant marketplace? If so, please check out our Market Vendors page, where you can find our Vendor Information and Application packet (available as a PDF or an online form).

Final Grandin market of the year!
Our holiday market is coming up on Saturday, 12/15, from 9am – 1pm! Stock up for your family feast and pick up original, hand-made gifts for your loved ones. See above for more details. Know anyone interested in selling their food or wares at Grandin in 2019? Forward them this email, or ask them to get in touch!

Fresh Food in the West End
We’re still holding it down on Patterson Avenue, even in the cold and dark! We’ve started dropping the vinyl enclosures so the wind doesn’t cut too cold; if the mercury drops too low on any given Tuesday, however, look for us inside. Come meet our newest vendor, Colton with DSM Agriculture – all proceeds from his GMO-free-feed, free-range chickens go to help at-risk kids in developing nations!
