Food has power to develop physically, spiritually, and mentally healthy individuals. The ability to produce our own food and raise healthy leaders is essential in building a strong and sovereign tribal nation.
Located in downtown Mission, this weekly seasonal farmers' market is a community gathering space where local produce, meat, eggs, and crafts are sold.
The market is able to accept SNAP/EBT and credit/debit. Stop by every Wednesday from 4:30-6:30.
Our seasonal market provides opportunities for tribal entrepreneurs, increases the availability of fresh, healthy foods, and supports community building by serving as a positive gathering space. The market accepts SNAP/EBT, and is developing new sites to increase access. Click here to learn more!
We are working with local youth and families to revive and preserve traditional Lakota food knowledge and practices through youth engagement, workshops/demonstrations, and community education efforts. Activities include wild food harvests, buffalo harvests, and video series. Through this program, we believe food can strengthen and validate Lakota identity.
Established in 2014, the Keya Wakpala Community Garden is a one-acre teaching & market garden site located near Turtle Creek Crossing Superfoods. Its mission is to model small-scale production and to provide local and nutritious food to the Sicangu Oyate. The garden was recently awarded a grant to build a greenhouse and a high tunnel!
With your support, we can increase the acreage of the garden from one acre to five acres by next year! Donate at the link above!
