Deadline Approaching for Farmers Market Promotion Grants
Mike Heavrin, Cooperative Development Manager at the Center for Rural Affairs, had this to say about the FMPP grants: “The Farmers Market Promotion Program is a great opportunity to help producers and communities cover some of the start-up costs of establishing a local farmers market or other form of direct marketing of agricultural commodities from producers to consumers. These projects and farmers markets are good for communities, bringing farmers and consumers together to create a stronger local economy and providing consumers with fresh, affordable produce.”
