We are constantly discussing the need to use our economic reach of over $1.1 trillion dollars a year to positively impact the black community and political system we find ourselves. However, we cannot do this if we are not spending our money wisely with one another.

Thanks to Victoria Massie for Blavity for doing the research and work to put the list together. (You can read original work here: Black Farmers to Buy From Instead of Whole Foods) Therefore, we feel it is imperative to continue to flood you with opportunities to do just that and support black owned businesses in a variety of industries. This can impact the number of jobs we have in the community, increase the amount circulating, raise our tax base for schools, programs and other much needed services.

In addition, it isn’t like these large, multinational organizations have your best interest at heart. Walmart isn’t supporting the “Black Lives Matter” movement and neither is Whole Foods because their constituents aren’t impacted by police brutality, the unbelieveable unemployment rate of the black community, nor the violence put upon us.

They don’t care, so why do you shop with them regularly?

No one is saying spend every dime you have with these 35 black farmer options, but at least increase your expenditures so these farmers can grow to begin supplying the grocery stores in our community. If we never support, we will never have what we all know we need intellectually.
