A new urban farm festival is coming to the community!!
Marketplace at the Roots is a Farmers Market and Festival that takes place every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month at Vegas Roots Community Garden.
The market was created to give nearby residents the opportunity to sell their wares, hear live music and see cultural performances, do hot yoga under the blue skies, feed the chickens, buy fresh veggies straight from the ground, bring the kiddos out and meet some other super cool folks!
This year's market features a special YouthPreneurs Zone. Organized by BDEP, the Zone is a by-youth, for-youth area of the market especially geared towards young entrepreneurs! For a nominal $5/market booth rent, youth ages 8-16 can have their own spaces to sell their products and practice their business skills! There will also be a monthly Business 101 class that the youngsters must attend that will teach money mgt, budgeting, bookkeeping, how to fill out a business application and more.

Vendor Spaces are available!! Please visit http://vegasroots.org/marketplace-at-the-roots-2/ for an application.
