Abstract

I worked with Re:New DeKalb, the organization that coordinates the DeKalb Farmers’ Market. The purpose of the project was to provide Re:New DeKalb with information and fliers that they could use to improve and promote the market. My project had two parts. The first part of the project was a survey that I created for community members to complete. After receiving Institutional Review Board approval, the survey was posted online and an e-mail was sent out through Re:New DeKalb. The survey asked questions to determine demographics of market patrons and non- patrons and their opinions and suggestions for the market. The responses to that survey were then analyzed. For the second part of the project, I created twenty produce fact sheets featuring items sold at the Farmers’ Market. These contain information about selection, storage, peak seasons, uses, recipes, fun facts and nutrition information for the featured produce item.
