Here we will post links to videos that will give you a different persepective on the market and some of its vendors and volunteers. If you have a video you'd like to share, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The remarkable story of Brightmoor Farm and the Detroit neighborhood it saved
Brightmoor Farms returns to the Farmington Farmers market as a Detroit food hub cooperative – a collection of urban farms that cultivates crops by hand and implements sustainable practices into their all natural produce picked exclusively for Farmington.
The Farmington Farmers Market is proud to support the "greening of Detroit" and applauds the efforts of neighborhoods such as Brightmoor in their quest to improve the quality of life for its residents, by providing food access, outreach and education. The battle for a better way has been waged for many years, and the tide may be turning.
This short video produced by Oprah Winfrey in 2014 tells the Brightmoor story. Though not featured in this video, Oprah’s film crew came to Farmington to take footage of the market and the Brightmoor farmstand.
Welcome Brightmoor when it offers its produce every other week starting June 1 at the Farmington Farmers Market.
