Greenbelt FarmersGreenbelt Farmers’ Market Network
$50,000 - October 12, 2011

Farmers’ Markets build healthy communities, support healthy eating habits, and encourage local agriculture. The Greenbelt Farmers’ Market Network continues to build and strengthen farmers’ markets by providing support to more than 80 farmers’ markets in and around the Greenbelt.  Now in its third year of operation, the Network advocates on behalf of all its markets, offers professional development to market managers, and supports best practices.

This grant helps the Greenbelt Farmers’ Market Network increase farming viability for farm vendors who sell at farmers’ markets in and around the Greenbelt.  Through their New Product Program, the Network will provide small grants to farmers to help them purchase equipment to support environmentally friendly ways to extend the growing season, develop new products for sale, and strengthen the overall economic success of farmers’ markets.
