Florida Organic Growers’ new local business incubator, 435 South Main, located between the Civic Media Center and Tamal, is now open for independent entrepreneurship, classes and private events. The location serves as a community platform for independent entrepreneurs and educators to operate in a low-cost environment by offering access to a certified commissary kitchen and pop-up cafe space, as well as a retail and classroom area.
435 South Main is operated by volunteers and is currently open to the public during the Artwalk on the last Friday of each month, and summer operating hours are every Thursday and Friday. Hours of operation will expand as new entrepreneurs and volunteers come on board. To participate, contact Casey (904-716-0526) for kitchen and café-related inquires or Sarah (352-562-5138) for retail, event and class inquires.
