Our Mission & Principles
The mission of the Denton Community Market is to contribute to the vitality, livability, and community spirit of Denton by creating a public gathering space that supports local culture and provides a market to bring together visitors with local artists, craftspeople, farmers, and food producers.
Our guiding principles remind us our values to:
- 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.
