The Arkansas Department of Agriculture and Farm Credit will partner again for the 5th annual Arkansas Farmers’ Market Promotion Program and the Arkansas Farmers Market Bag Program.
These programs, which are administered by the Department and funded by Farm Credit, help build awareness of farmers’ market locations and offerings.
Farmers Market Promotion Grants may fund the following promotional items to build community and regional awareness for a specific farmers market:
- Signage listing names;
- Times of operation;
- Location details;
- Local advertising including print, radio, and television media projects; and
- Social media campaigns.
In 2019, the department provided $9,000 in grants to 24 Arkansas Farmers Markets through the partnership with Farm Credit.
Applications are due March 2. Applications and more information can be found at www.agriculture.arkansas.gov/farmers-market-programs.
