Mobile Farmers’ Market Establishment

Year Funded

2017

Amount

$111,000

This project seeks to establish the first mobile farmers’ market in WNC. The Mobile Market will increase farm product sales and provide access to new customers and markets. This project will provide the final renovations of the market needed and provide operational support for the first two years. The mobile farmers market will also provide access for consumers to local farm products that are otherwise unable to do so due to limiting factors such as time, transportation, or knowledge. Some new customers will be in low income and food insecure areas, this project will provide these customers access to high quality food.
