Riverside Community Market Association (RCMA) now runs three weekly farmers markets in Cardiff. RCMA also aims to improve knowledge about, and access to, a fresh healthy diet and reduce the level of ‘food poverty’ in South Riverside and adjacent areas of Cardiff. For example, the award-winning RCMA Community Allotment attracts up to twenty local residents per week to learn how to grown their own food and enjoy the social and recreational benefits of gardening. In addition the RCMA Community Food Coordinator delivers a wide-ranging programme of food and nutrition workshops in the local community and has set up the Taffside Food and Health Network. RCMA recently launched a Market Garden project which will be a social enterprise growing organic produce to sell locally, and delivering training activities in sustainable living and intensive horticulture.
