Details:

The Bronzeville Grower's Market is a weekly market that brings sustainable agricultural practices to the Bronzeville neighborhood. Sponsored by the Maroon Arts Group, the Bronzeville Grower's Market highlights local creators, artists, and farmers, joining together to provide food in a food desert.

 

Join Besa and the Bronzeville Grower's Market to ensure our neighbors have access to local, sustainable food. As a volunteer, you'll restore Box Park to it's original state after the Market, helping with activities such as trash pick up, clearing tables, and tearing down chairs, and more. 

 

The Bronzeville Grower's Market will provide masks, gloves, and also practice social distancing. Client interaction will take place during this volunteer event. If you have your own gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own. 

 

The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 50, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
