Growing Hope is delighted to announce our 2015 Patronicity crowdfunding campaign to create a permanent, indoor-outdoor, year-round place for our beloved Downtown Farmers Market: the Ypsilanti Farmers MarketPlace!
Patronicity is a crowdfunding site devoted to local projects. Our goal is to raise $65,000 by Tuesday, June 9th, and if we succeed, we'll receive $65,000 match from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. This will be an important part of funding the renovation of two underutilized properties in the heart of downtown Ypsilanti. The Ypsilanti Farmers MarketPlace means our Tuesday farmers markets can happen year-round, rain or shine! With the support of our donors and sponsors, the MarketPlace will be open in time for the Downtown Farmers Market to be housed there this winter, connecting our community with fresh, local food all year long.
