December Open Networking Meeting: Dekalb Market

Holiday Networking with Food Entrepreneurs at Dekalb Market

Celebrate local food entrepreneurship with FSNYC on a tour of Dekalb Market where you'll find recycled shipping containers teeming with Brooklyn’s entrepreneurs and chefs. The setting is also home to FOOD 360, an innovative farm to fork job training program and partnership between the Market, FSNYC member FamilyCook Productions, and the new kitchen incubator: Market Share. We suggest you plan to arrive at 12:00, enjoy lunch from the delicious eateries that are part of the market, or buy local produce from the market’s farm stand at Plough. At 12:30, there will be hot cider and nibbles with the project participants:

Eldon Scott, Urban Space, developers of Dekalb Market

Michael Silver, Workforce Development and NYC Small Business Solutions

Lynn Fredericks, FamilyCook Productions, Food 360 @Dekalb Market

Erica Brenner, FamilyCook Productions, Food 360 Farmer

Rich Awn, Market Share, kitchen incubator & retailer @Dekalb Market


Tours of the market and the farm/kitchen will be organized starting at 1:00 pm. Plan to come early and stay late!
