JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri is home to nearly 300 farmers’ markets that provide venues for agricultural producers to sell their products directly to consumers. Missouri’s farmers’ markets range from a few vendors gathered under tents to hundreds of vendors participating in year-round farmers’ markets in permanent structures. The Missouri Department of Agriculture is currently offering the Farmers’ Market Promotion Matching Grant Program to support the promotion and advertisement of Missouri’s farmers’ markets.
The Farmers’ Market Promotion Matching Grant Program, funded through the Missouri Department of Agriculture, awards grants of up to $1,000 for reimbursement of expenses associated with promoting farmers’ markets in their local communities. Projects should promote the farmers’ market in the local community and improve understanding, perception, knowledge and location of the farmers’ market.
