SAGE’s staff has considerable expertise in the arena of public markets and farmers’ markets, based on many years of experience planning and managing them. SAGE president and founder Sibella Kraus created the acclaimed San Francisco Ferry Plaza Farmers’ Market.
SAGE has consulted on the development and revitalization of public and farmers’ markets nationwide – including Portland Public Market, Fruitvale Market, the Detroit Eastern Market and the Santa Rosa Railroad Square Market. For example:
- Eastern Market, Detroit (2006-7): Consultation with Project for Public Spaces on the development of an outreach plan to re-establish Detroit’s Eastern Market as a destination for farm fresh seasonal produce, a year-round provider of quality foods and a center for food systems education.
- New Railroad Square (2006-7): Consultation with Creative Housing Associates on the vision and concept for new public market, as the centerpiece for a proposed transit oriented development in Santa Rosa.
