BRYAN, Texas — As part of its continued commitment to rural communities across Texas, Capital Farm Credit awarded 21 farmers markets each a $1,000 grant to assist with their operating efforts and longevity.
“Farmers markets are one of the oldest form of direct marketing in agriculture,” said Ben Novosad, chief executive officer. “It is one of our priorities at Capital Farm Credit to support these markets, the ag producers they support and the customers they serve. These farmers markets represent the foundation of what agriculture is built on, and remain a substantial part of rural communities and rural America.”
This year, Capital Farm Credit awarded grants totaling $21,000 to qualifying farmers markets. Each grant recipient receives a check for $1,000 and 200 reusable shopping bags (an added in-kind value of $300) for use at their respective market.
