The Apple Cart
The Apple Cart helps entrepreneurs start and grow food businesses in and around Richmond, VA. In 2010, Barb Upchurch and Stephanie Ganz met at a Richmond-based non-profit dedicated to helping people start small businesses. There, Barb was the Director of the Women's Business Center, and Stephanie managed the Breadwinners program--a grant-funded initiative designed to help women create food-based businesses. The two were an instant match, sharing a love of food, travel, and enterprise development; and they've been working together ever since. Barb and Stephanie create tailored, goal-oriented strategy for marketing and business growth and provide educational workshops and one-off coaching sessions for business owners.
As regular supporters of the Birdhouse Farmers Market, the Apple Cart decided to sponsor a table this season to give our clients a chance to pop up for one special market at a time to connect with this audience of locavores. We'll be opening up the table to folks like PastryBase, Birdie's Pimento Cheese, Hummingbird Gardens and more on the fourth Tuesday of every month!
