STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The mission of the Local Food Market LV is to provide the Lehigh Valley with a source of high quality locally grown or made food, beverages and products. Our goal is to promote agriculture and provide increased business opportunities for local farms and food businesses in the Lehigh Valley. As a result, fresh, healthy food availability for the area will increase and farmers will have a modern outlet for their products and increased viability.
FRESH FRIDAYS LFM
Local Food Market LV originally started as the Downtown Allentown Local Food Market, LLC in 2017. City Center contacted us to start a market downtown the year prior. Branded as Fresh Fridays by City Center, initially it was held at the Wells Fargo plaza at 7th and Hamilton. In 2018 we moved the market to the newly renovated area of the Arts Walk at 6th and Court Streets where we had about five vendors all season. Most of the vendors were new businesses in their first year, never before participating in a farmers' market. We were happy to coach them along and provide a new market opportunity for them while making fresh food available to everyone in the downtown Allentown food desert area.
