In 2016 we received a USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program grant (FMPP) to assess our local direct-to-consumer markets, make recommendations on how we can improve these markets and finally implement these recommendations. The ultimate goal of this grant project is to increase farm viability and profitability in our region.
Farmers Market Coordination and Development
Farmers Markets are an important market channel for local farmers and an important gathering spot for communities throughout Northern Colorado. To help coordinate and improve these markets every year we bring together market managers to discuss the challenges that they face and how other markets have overcome many of these similar challenges
