The successful outcome for TXFED is for local food producers and farmers markets to increase customers and sales, develop new market opportunities, and create jobs leading to economic sustainability of Texas local food systems.
Create a sustainable statewide collaborative providing a single source of consistent, reliable, high-quality, peer training and technical assistance.
Develop an online training system accessible via any device both asynchronously (on demand) and synchronously (live in real time), with classes available in English and Spanish.
The Texas Center for Local Food is committed to upholding diversity, equity, and inclusion in our work. TXFED.org seeks to deliver enriching educational experiences and connect with an audience that reflects of our diverse Texas local food system. We believe every member of our food system deserves equal opportunity to learn and share their experience.
TCLF staff and statewide TXFED.org collaborators are honored to amplify the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and other historically underserved members of our food system. TXFED.org is a platform to share knowledge and resources as we collectively grow a more equitable regional food system. Just like our food crops, our projects and courses thrive when we embrace diversity.

"I liked the testimonials from farmer's market participants, simple to use ideas, links to helpful information."
"It gave me lots of ideas of how to improve being a vendor at our farmer's market. It also gave me plenty of new ideas of how to display our items."
"The format is very user friendly, and I like the video lengths as well - not too long, not too short. This is a very good starting point for markets looking to build their social media presence!"
