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 seasonal farmers' market is a community gathering space where local produce, meat, eggs, prepared foods, and crafts are sold every week in the summer months.
The market accepts cash, SNAP/EBT and credit/debit.
Our seasonal market provides opportunities for tribal entrepreneurs, increases the availability of fresh, local, healthy foods, and supports community building efforts by serving as a positive gathering space. In 2019, we began developing new mobile market sites to increase food access across the reservation. Click here to learn more!
Together with local youth and families, we're working to revive and preserve traditional Lakota food knowledge and practices.
Through youth engagement, workshops, demonstrations, a video series, and community education efforts, we've offered our community the opportunity to participate in and learn about wild food harvests, buffalo harvests, and traditional food preparation techniques.
Through this program, we believe food can strengthen and validate Lakota identity.
Established in 2014, the Three Sisters Farm, formerly known as the Keya Wakpala Community Garden, is a one-acre teaching & market garden site located near Turtle Creek Crossing Superfoods in Mission, SD.
Its mission is to model small-scale production and to provide local and nutritious food to the Sicangu Oyate. Over the years we've added a greenhouse, caterpillar high tunnels, and poultry to the site.
With your support, we can increase the acreage of the garden from one acre to five acres by summer 2021! Donate at the link above!
