The Woodland City Council adopted a resolution authorizing negotiations to enter into an agreement to provide city funding for the Woodland Mobile Farmers Market Project. The city will provide up to $250,000 in city funding to be used for the initial start-up, personnel and operational expenses for the Center for Land-Based Learning's project, with any unused funds being retained or returned to the city, according to the city staff report. 'There is an overwhelming need to increase access to fresh and healthy food in low-income neighborhoods that suffer from the effects of ‘food deserts,'' the report emphasized.
