What We Do Our Mission + Vision + Values

Our Mission

Green City Market is securing the future of food by deepening support for sustainable farmers, educating our community, and expanding access to locally-grown food.

Our Vision

Green City Market envisions a future where sustainable farmers are thriving. In this future, everyone — in our community and across the nation — knows who grows their food, how it's grown, and why this knowledge matters. We imagine a future where all neighbors — regardless of zip code or income level — have access to locally-grown, sustainably-produced food.

Our Values


We make decisions that are future-focused and strengthen our resources and our communities for generations to come. 


We recognize that we are at our best when our minds and bodies are well-nourished.


We ensure that our work is inclusive, approachable, and obtainable. We believe everyone has the right to nourishing local food — and work to provide access to everyone regardless of zip code or income level.   


We value diversity and are committed to listening, learning, examining, and acting on the ways we can ensure our work reflects the diversity of the communities that we serve.


Collaboration and connectedness is centered in the approach to our work. The results of our work are strengthened by listening to our community’s lived experiences. Teamwork makes the dream work.
