Farmer Market Grant Program- Vendor

Home > Giving Back > Grants > Farmer Market Grant Program- Vendor
Fresh and healthy food is a vital part of our local and regional food systems. Farmers markets offer farmers the unique opportunity to work directly with consumers and diversify their business.

The Compeer Financial Farmer Market Grant Program has two different grant programs: one designed to help organizations and another for farmers directly.

Grants for farmer market vendors are designed to help farmers with education, marketing or technology advancements. This can include developing branding, website creation, or mobile payment technology products (excluding cell/smart phones) or fees. Grants funds are not intended for farm/operation input or operating costs.
