Mission & Principles

The mission of the Denton Community Market is to strengthen the Denton community by providing economic opportunities for local artists, businesses, food vendors, and food producers to contribute to the vitality and livability of Denton.

Values:

  • provide a setting in which community members can purchase local products from local producers
  • provide educational opportunities to learn about the products made and grown in our community
  • promote the local economy by connecting food producers and consumers
  • reduce barriers to entry for new entrepreneurs and small businesses
  • promote sustainable farmer practices and environmental stewardship while educating the public about these practices, and
  • strengthen ties between community members by creating a sense of place.
