Brock Nix, founder of Common Roots Farmers Market

This week we’re delving back into indie start-up territory with Brock Nix, founder of Common Roots Farmers Market, which recently opened in Avondale Estates. Brock combined his family history of farming and produce with his business knowledge when he launched Common Roots Farmers Market. It’s a 12,000 square-foot market, specializing in exceptional quality, low-priced produce, grab-n-go meals, premium meats, seasonal outdoor selections and more. Brock talks about the inspiration behind opening his own farmers market, facing supply chain challenges, how to differentiate a business from the competition, and much more.
