stiles_farmers_market

The George Washington Carver Initiative was developed by our leadership team as a local initiative to assist Black Farmers within the state of Florida by encouraging individuals to shop for their Thanksgiving holiday needs at Stile’s Farmers Market located at 5920 W Oakland Park Blvd, Lauderhill, FL 33313. Stile’s Farmers Market is the only Black owned full service grocer in the State of Florida, and receives over 50% of their produce from Black or minority suppliers. The initiative has been well received and has enjoyed national attention from outlets such as The Griot (http://thegrio.com/2016/11/03/black-owned-grocery-store/), Michaelbaisden.com ,(http://michaelbaisden.com/thanksgiving-initiative-pushes-support-black-owned-grocery-store/), and hopefully now, we can receive your support as an NPHC leader. Your work in the community to provide inspiration, hope, and encouragement is greatly respected and appreciated. The importance of this initiative comes at a very critical time in our local and national community. We are requesting your support in encouraging your networks to shop at Stile’s Farmer’s Market for all their Thanksgiving needs this year in an effort to support the ONLY BLACK OWNED SUPERMARKET in the entire State of Florida, and one of the few within the entire nation.

To participate in our local initiative, we set up a Facebook invite page requesting organizations to direct their memberships to sign up for their shopping commitment this Thanksgiving holiday. Interested individuals would visit the Facebook event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/562383407290126/ and select to attend the event. We encourage churches, fraternities, sororities, restaurants, families, and individuals to commit to shopping Black this Thanksgiving!`

Best,
