The African People’s Education and Defense Fund will be opening the One Africa! One Nation! Farmers Market in the summer of 2021!
The market will create an oasis and a blueprint for addressing the issues of concentrated poverty, food apartheid and grave health disparities found in the historically black community of North St. Louis.
It will build capacity for local job creation and instill a community-based approach to black empowerment and economic development.
We know how important your contributions are to making this Farmers Market a reality in our community and we thank you.
