Food has power in developing physically, spiritually, and mentally healthy individuals. The ability to produce our own food and raise healthy leaders is essential to building a strong and sovereign tribal nation.
Located in downtown Mission, this weekly seasonal farmers' market is a community gathering space where local produce, meat, eggs, and crafts are sold.
The market is able to accept SNAP/EBT and credit/debit. Stop by every Wednesday from 4:30-6:30.
Our seasonal market provides opportunities for tribal entrepreneurs, increases the availability of fresh, healthy foods, and supports community building by serving as a positive gathering space. The market accepts SNAP/EBT, and is developing new sites to increase access.

"Food sovereignty is about going back to who we are as a people. Being self-sufficient, giving back to the Earth, a more balanced way of life. It's helping us practice our traditional ways"
