On KRCB’s July 30 episode of Bay Area Bountiful, you’ll step inside the Oakland – Grand Lake Farmers Market, one of seven certified farmers markets operated by the Agricultural Institute of Marin. AIM’s market managers understand why farmers markets are important community events, and make financial accessibility for those visiting the market a priority. The organizers work hard to ensure that each market is tailored to the needs of the community it serves. In the episode, you’ll hear from farmers about their market experience, and listen to community stakeholders discuss how they see the Grand Lake Market going forward into the future. The episode features AIM staff Andy Naja-Riese, Tanya Wolf-Small, and Dan Foster; farmers and local food purveyors from Ledesma Farms, Lucero Farmers, and Base Camp Bakery; as well as representatives from the Grand Lake Citizens Advisory Committee and the City of Oakland.
