WHY: Reflecting upon the past, present, and future of the South Central Farmers. A year after the final eviction, our neighborhoods still lack access to healthy produce and quality green space. While unable to farm the 14 acres at Alameda and 41st street, the fight for food sovereignty, land access, and a better quality of life continues for the South Central Farmers. Displaced, but not defeated, the farmers continue their work to bring change to their communities.


As part of their commitment to keep Bringing Food to the Hood, the SCFHEF hosts a monthly Tianguis marketplace in collaboration with various community-based organizations, artisans, and local merchants. Every first Sunday of the month, the Tianguis transforms public space surrounding the original 14-acre farm into a site for healthy eating, healthy economics, and healthy relationships.
