Farmers’ market grant application time starts

— Farmers’ markets provide fresh produce and locally made products while supporting communities. The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry is accepting applications for grants to assist existing farmers’ markets.

To be eligible for the grant, markets must be registered with the department as Oklahoma Grown. Markets that have been registered with the Oklahoma Grown program for the last three consecutive years are eligible for up to $2,000. Markets registered for less than three years are eligible for up to $1,500.

Grant funds may be used for signage, marketing, advertising, newsletter publishing and other approved promotional pursuits.

The 2013 Oklahoma Grown Farmers Market Specialty Crop Grant program has $55,000 available to be dispersed to several markets. Applications must be postmarked by Feb. 28.

Information: Oklahoma Grown Program Coordinator Nathan Kirby, (405) 522-6194.
