CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) The Wyoming Food for Thought Project held their final Summer Market event on Tuesday night.

The event has been going on since early June at David Street Station and gives local businesses the chance to showcase their items.

Many of these businesses do not have a physical building. The Summer Market is a way for them to connect with the community.

The Wyoming Food for Thought Project encourages the community to buy local and support their local businesses.

“You know I think the biggest thing we can improve on is the community just understanding the value of local food in our community. Understanding how important it is to shop local and when you spend your money and buy something from your neighbor, how impactful that is.” Said Jamie Purcell, Executive Director of Wyoming Food for Thought Project.

Wyoming Food for Thought Project plans to continue to host events throughout the winter.
