The North Park Farmers' Market (NPFM) was born out of a recognition that there are no grocery stores in the neighborhood around North Park, which makes it difficult for residents to access healthy food. Impact Alamance, Healthy Alamance, and the City of Burlington came together in June 2015 to begin developing the NPFM, and soon accrued many more community partners, including faith organizations, the Health Department, the Alamance County Libraries, NC State Extension, the Farm Bureau, the school system, local residents, local farmers, and many others. The market operates under the only permanent farmers' market shelter in Alamance County and runs every Tuesday, 3:00-6:00 p.m. from April until October. If you are an interested vendor, please contact Ann Meletzke, ann.meletzke@conehealth.com Not only will the NPFM be a venue for fresh food, but it also offers culinary/nutrition classes, cooking demonstrations, health and wellness lectures, internship opportunities for high school students, and a community photo project.

Our special guest speaker this month is Burlington native, businessman, and local historian Holt Skinner. Holt has been fascinated with the history of Burlington and Alamance County since an early age starting with connections to his own family history. He will be talking about the people, businesses, inventions, and happenings that made Burlington "Bigger Better Burlington" and helped it grow through a century long booming textiles economy and the changes and transition into the new STEM economy we are settling into today. Holt's talk will cover big businesses like Glen Raven, Lab Corp, and Carolina Biological and also local inventors and entrepreneurs all the way through today's Maker Movement helping to bring back jobs and support STEM Education. Holt tells a positive story that will make you proud to be a resident of Burlington and hopeful for our future together. Also on the Agenda for June: * Show-N-Tell (Bring YOUR Projects and news!) Make sure to bring your cool projects for show-n-tell... this is one of the best parts of our meetings but we need YOU to show off! * Membership Drive: Become a dues paying member of the Alamance Makers Guild and help support the expenses of Maker Faire and enable us to do more cool community projects! * News and Updates * Call for Volunteers * Updates on Future Events * Reports from our Interest Groups As always, AMG Open Meetings are free, fun, and family friendly. We are open to anyone including teens and accompanied older children. Please share our events (we grow by word of mouth) Since July 2014 Burlington NC is proud to be a #MakerCity and home to a growing Maker Ecosystem featuring the Alamance Makers Guild, the STEAM Junction Makerspace, Maker Faire Burlington, and a growing network of individuals, businesses, new industry, organizations (Elon University, Alamance Community College, Alamance County Public Libraries), and Schools working together to enable new creative and high-tech jobs, improve STEM Education, and build community.

The North Park Farmers' Market (NPFM) was born out of a recognition that there are no grocery stores in the neighborhood around North Park, which makes it difficult for residents to access healthy food. Impact Alamance, Healthy Alamance, and the City of Burlington came together in June 2015 to begin developing the NPFM, and soon accrued many more community partners, including faith organizations, the Health Department, the Alamance County Libraries, NC State Extension, the Farm Bureau, the school system, local residents, local farmers, and many others. The market operates under the only permanent farmers' market shelter in Alamance County and runs every Tuesday, 3:00-6:00 p.m. from April until October. If you are an interested vendor, please contact Ann Meletzke, ann.meletzke@conehealth.com Not only will the NPFM be a venue for fresh food, but it also offers culinary/nutrition classes, cooking demonstrations, health and wellness lectures, internship opportunities for high school students, and a community photo project.
