Arden Garden Farmers Market

San Francisco, California

About this nonprofit organization
The construction and operation of a 7-day public marketplace on a 2.5 acre site in Sacramento is the purpose of seeking design help. The market will feature farm fresh affordable product from up to 200 farms alongside a perm. structure that houses dairy, meat, poultry, fish and baked goods. Also operating 7 days will be the 20 plus booths of ethnic food stuffs. Hookups for 6-8 food trucks, inside and outside stages for classes and entertainment, parking for 400 cars, and most importantly a 4,000 sq. foot structure cold/dry distribution hub for 20 or more sustainable and organic farms make this site unique and multi layered. The site sits between two light rail stations and has over 60,000 cars passing by daily. The program for the educational component would be accessible to at least 5-7 culinary schools, groups, and organizations. Our goal is to bring 40,000 visits to this market weekly.
