SUPPORTING LOCAL PRODUCERS
Common Greens provides a centralized operating structure to increase efficiency, consistency and impact for producers selling at our markets. By handling the planning and logistics of market operations, our producers are free to focus on growing and producing the highest-quality local food for market.
Did you know that a 2021 report found that every $1 spent at the farmers market translates into $1.51 across the regional economy? We estimate that shoppers spent $1.52M at Common Greens markets last year, which equals an economic impact of $2.29M regionally! Farmers markets are unique in the fact that 100% of sales go directly to the producer, providing a valuable revenue stream that keeps Ohio farmland in sustainable production and small businesses afloat.
