At the Public Market, we pride ourselves on providing a huge array of healthy, affordable produce for the community, year-round. And thanks to the nonprofit Flower City Pickers, the Market is diverting produce that might otherwise end up landfilled and contributing it to community organizations and neighbors in need.
The Flower City Pickers volunteers come to the Market every single Saturday, year-round, to collect surplus produce donated by generous vendors. They sort and weigh the produce, and deliver it to community organizations, and even to farmers for livestock feed or compost! These industrious volunteers collect over a ton of produce every week.
The Pickers rescue food at the Market that might otherwise be thrown away, and thus help the Market meet its mission of getting good, affordable food into the hands and bellies of the community!
If you'd like to help feed the community--and feed your own soul too!--the Flower City Pickers could use your help. Learn more and get connected at www.flowercitypickers.com, or see the Pickers any/every Saturday between 12 and 3 pm at the Market.
