Kati Trice first developed her vision for the Denton Community Market in 2008 during a small group program called What’s Your Tree. Through group discussion and readings regarding purpose and action, Kati articulated her desire to create the Denton Community Market as a place for local producers to sell directly to local residents and to establish a gathering place to facilitate connection between community members. In 2010, at the age of 25, Kati, and a team of volunteers, launched Market Opening Day in downtown Denton, Texas.
In 2015 Kati was awarded Public Citizen of the Year by the Texoma Branch of the National Association of Social Workers for her work as Founder of the Denton Community Market.
