DP3 Architects Announces Initiative to Support Local Farmers Markets
DP3 Architects is proud to announce its sponsorship of local farmers markets as a part of a new community-driven initiative, “Market Days.” Aimed at bolstering local farmers markets, this initiative is rooted in recognizing the vital role that farmers markets play in fostering a healthier and more vibrant society. Local farmers markets offer a direct channel for farmers to sell their fresh produce and artisanal goods to local residents. Beyond just being a marketplace, they foster a sense of community, promote sustainable practices, and contribute to the overall well-being of the area. DP3 Architects has committed itself to empowering these important community hubs in the Upstate.
On June 24th, 2023, DP3 Architects was honored to join the Travelers Rest Farmers Market as it’s featured sponsor of the week. The Travelers Rest Farmers Market is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit organization created to provide a forum for the exchange of local products and goods, as well as educational and cultural activities for increasing knowledge in the local production of natural products, while also fostering a sense of community among the residents and visitors of the Travelers Rest area.
Principal and Community Studio Leader, Mike Pry, was given the honor of ringing the opening bell to kick off the day. The firm’s booth at the center of the market provided a variety of activities for kids. Our team enjoyed helping with a watercolor station and engineering the perfect paper airplane. This market day was especially rewarding for team members who had a hand in the design of the surrounding DP3 projects; The Travelers Rest City Hall & Police Headquarters, The Travelers Rest Fire Station Headquarters, and the Trailblazer Park Amphitheater Canopy.
DP3 Architects seeks to create spaces that foster community engagement and enhance the overall quality of life for the people who work and play daily in the spaces we create. As a firm that lives and works in the Upstate, DP3 Architects is thankful for opportunities to get involved in the communities we serve. In addition to sponsoring the Travelers Rest Farmers Market, the “Market Days” initiative also supports the Greer Farmers Market, the Fountain Inn Farmers Market, and Spartanburg’s Hub City Farmers Market.
