Enlightening conversation today with a representative of a real estate company that owns nearly 1,000 multi-family units within 5 miles of Norcross Community Market. Residents earn about 50-80% of the area median income.
The company is seeking local partners to help close the gap for the residents related to security, education, and health. Contact sustainable norcross at gmail dot com or norcross community market at gmail dot com for more info. ... See MoreSee Less

Looking forward to the Food for Thought Conference this Thursday and Friday hosted by Georgia Farmers Market Association.
Georgia Farmers Market Association
We love hearing the success stories of our community partners and member farmers markets. Longleaf Media sat down with Connie Weathers of Sustainable Norcross to discuss the conception of the Norcross Community Market, the value of seeking input from the community, and the importance they place on diversity at the market in vendors present, products offered, and customers served. Connie also talks about the valuable takeaways from last year's Food for Thought Conference and what she is looking forward to this year. Join us along with Connie, Longleaf Media, and a host of other Georgia farmers, market managers, homesteaders, and food advocates for this year's conference.
