Outcomes for producers and farmers markets are to increase customers and sales, develop new market
opportunities and create jobs leading to economic sustainability of Texas’ local food systems.

The TXFED network aims to: 

  1. Create a sustainable statewide collaborative providing a single source of consistent, reliable, high-quality peer-to-peer training and technical assistance.
  2. Develop an online training system accessible via any device both asynchronously (on demand) and synchronously (live in real time), with classes available in English and Spanish

A future stage of TXFED is to offer community members the opportunity to create their own courses under the TXFED process and platform with support from TCLF staff. Do you have knowledge and experience in the field of food to share? Let's work together! Contact us at AskMe@TexasLocalFood.org
