Capital Farm Credit continues to grant funding to farmers markets across the state as a part of its Farmers Market Grant Program.
The Association awarded 18 farmers markets a $1,000 grant to assist with their operating efforts and longevity.
“Agriculture is the backbone of Capital Farm Credit’s business,” said Jeff Norte, chief executive officer. “It is a priority for Capital Farm Credit to support Texas farmers markets. They exhibit the foundations of what agriculture is built on and remain a substantial part of rural communities and rural America.”
CFC awarded grants totaling $18,000 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.
