USDA Investing in Growth of Farmers Markets
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), with its creation of the Farmers Market Promotion Program (FMPP), is helping to push farmers to grow more food that can be sold locally in farmers markets. By providing grants to local growers and farmers markets, the FMPP looks to help out small farmers, rather than big businesses. This article articulates the relationship between the Farmers Market Promotion Program to, most specifically, the USDA’s farm bill and how these grants can benefit local projects such as the Farmers Market Coalition.
