Following several years of gathering community input, assessing community needs, and building partnerships, Great Northern will help realize a marketplace center in Mount Shasta: the “Local Food Marketplace at The Landing.”
- Permanent kitchen facilities available for rent by small and start-up food businesses
- Expert business development training and support for local food entrepreneurs
- Locally sourced and crafted products available for sale year-round on site
- An expanded, year-round Farmers Market at the marketplace center
More ideas are being explored, all aimed to create a place where community members can participate in the county’s food security and economic vitality.
Great Northern is proud help create the conceptual plan for this center; working with the partnership and support of the Jefferson Economic Development Institute, the City of Mount Shasta, USDA Rural Development, the McConnell Foundation, the Ford Family Foundation, College of the Siskiyous, and the County of Siskiyou
