CASPER, Wyo – The Wyoming Food for Thought Project said today in a release that the Summer Farmers Markets are returning to David Street Station. Markets will be every Tuesday night from 5:00 pm-8:00 pm starting on July 7th, and will run through September 1st.

The Online Markets will run simultaneously for the duration of the summer.

A release from David Street Station last week said, “Visitors will enjoy a great selection of local produce, dairy products, baked goods, home décor and more.”

In order to comply with CDC and NCHD standards, ​Food for Thought organizers ask all visitors to follow social distancing guidelines and to not attend if they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms. All visitors will be entering from the North West entrance of David Street Station, and a one-way flow of traffic is required. Vendors will be required to wear face coverings and use hand sanitizer or gloves when handling products.

Markets are one of many programs started by The Wyoming Food for Thought Project. They also have a year-round Weekend Food Bag Program, “Food is Free” community gardens, an Online Farmer’s Market, a Free Store, and they recently purchased the Good Food Hub. The overall mission of this organization is to provide, educate, and empower their community in the interest of creating food security for all.

“The Food for Thought Markets are an important piece of our local solution to hunger. We are excited that the market season is launching and that once again we will be building a strong, local food system and making local food more accessible for everyone” said Cassandra Baker, the Market Manager and Associate Director of the Wyoming Food for Thought Project.
