When Wedgewood Church asked Madison Park Homeowners Association what we could do for them the answer came back quicky. "We would like to have a Farmers Market in the neighborhood."
Wedgewood Church is committed to making Madison Park a great place to live, supporting local farmers, and setting an example of good stewardship of the earth.
Local farmers do not play on a level playing field. Research the advantages of agribusiness. Local farmers are not becoming rich from their farming. They farm, yes, because they make a living farming, but they also farm because they love to farm.
Compare the transportation costs of local farmers (famers within 100 miles of Charlotte) to the transportation costs of the food you buy in grocery stores.
