It takes a lot of work to make the Market at Pepper Place happen every Saturday. You see thousands of shoppers each week, but big crowds don't directly translate into more income for us. We are a not-for-profit market and rely on tent fees plus sponsorships and grants to keep things going.
As we grow and offer more programs like Double Up Food Bucks for SNAP customers, we also need the support of our community - you - to make the Market a success.
