Our eXtension community, Entrepreneurs and Their Communities, continues to highlight Small Business Week+. With land-grant universities across the country supporting small businesses and their development, we have lots of great small business partners to highlight. If you are thinking about starting a small business, stop in at your local Extension office.

Marie Bridgewater has just begun her second season at the Fairbanks Downtown Market. With the assistance of the UAF Cooperative Extension Service, Marie has been able to successfully start her own small business selling Lumpia (Filipino egg rolls) at a food stand.
Extension was able to assist Marie by helping to navigate the process of becoming a small food business in the state of Alaska and providing a DEC permitable space for preparation of food products to take to market.
Come see Marie and try her egg rolls any Monday at the Fairbanks Downtown Market.
