Zanesville Farmers’ Market and FoodWorks Alliance Community Survey

An announcement on behalf of the Zanesville Farmers’ Market and FoodWorks Alliance.

The Zanesville Farmers’ Market and FoodWorks Alliance are exploring the possibility of creating a Local Foods Resource Center that would serve Zanesville and Muskingum County.

The goal would be to provide space for a yearlong farmers’ market, a commercial kitchen, and space for training for food related businesses and or organizations.

With support from the Muskingum County Community Foundation, we are taking surveys of the public opinions and potential support for this endeavor. The survey is divided into 3 categories; customers, vendors, and restaurants. Each category contains 10 questions and space for comments.

This survey is not designed for implementing a plan for execution, but instead to gather the public’s view of creating a Local Foods Resource Center. We do not want to compete or duplicate existing services, but instead support coordination of resources.

Survey link: https://forms.gle/XncnA6NYQWENNKzy9

The surveys will be available starting September 9th and ending on September 28th.

They can be found via Facebook @foodworksalliance, on Instagram @foodworks_alliance, and on our website www.foodworksalliance.com.
