I briefly mentioned this in another thread, but I think it merits its own post. If for no other reason than to help generate outreach ideas for other churches out there.
Artisan Church has opened their doors to host the Long Season Farmers Market. The market will feature about 15 vendors and will be held from now through May – when it’s a wee bit too cold in these parts to shop for locally grown fruits and veggies outdoors.
I think it’s a really unique way to collaborate with other organizations and raise the church’s visibility. It’s also great fit culturally for the church and the neighborhood they’re in. Plus it will provide countless ways to connect with others in the community.
