Farmers’ Market Grants

Farm Credit East recognizes the importance of farmers’ markets for both producers and consumers. To support this important marketing channel, we are offering Farmers' Market Grants up to $500 to eligible applicants.


Farmers' markets must be within Farm Credit East’s eight-state territory: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Preference will be given to worthy applicants who are seeking support for the first time. Special consideration will also be given to markets serving underserved communities with limited access to fresh, local food.

Awards will be made at the sole discretion of Farm Credit East.

How to Apply/Application Requirements

The 2024 application cycle is open. Please submit the Farmers' Market Grant Application below.

Recipients will be notified by late June.
