In September 2015, Live Well Crawford County, New Venture Advisors, and K-State University partnered for a FEAST — Food Education Agriculture Solutions Together — strategic planning session. The grassroots tool strives to help communities mobilize around improving their local food systems. To download the report highlighting results of the session, click on the button above.
New Venture Advisors, under the guidance of Eat Well Crawford County and with support from Kansas State University’s Center for Engagement and Community Development, conducted a food systems assessment of Crawford County, Kansas. The goal of this study was to develop a prioritized action plan for Eat Well to focus the group’s energy and efforts for the next several years. A recommended action plan emerged.

Pittsburg Farmers Market
Open from April to October at the Pavilion at 11th and Broadway in historic downtown Pittsburg, the market is a great place to find in-season produce, baked goods, jams and jellies, crafts, and other locally-produced merchandise.
It is producer-only, meaning everything at the market is grown (or created) and sold by the vendors themselves. Eating local has never been easier, as all vendors are based within a 75-mile radius of Pittsburg.
Visit the market on Tuesdays from 4 to 7 p.m. while produce is available, and on Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. to noon.
