Come learn more about how markets are being used as a tool for job creation, community development, and bringing new life to lower-income neighborhoods. Taste a sampling of farm fresh foods and wines direct from the Roanoke Public Market in Virginia and other markets around the country, including Crescent City Farmers Market at the historic French Market in New Orleans and Pike Place Market in Seattle.
