The USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program (FMPP) grant has been awarded to the Ohio Farmers Market Network to create a farmers market collaborative in Central Ohio!
The proposal was informed by a project team created by the Local Food Board, led by the Local Food Team, and made up of many of you from the Food Council. This project team has been working to implement Action B-3 from the Local Food Action Plan with a goal to "Establish a Formal Farmers’ Market Management Collaborative Serving the City of Columbus and Franklin County."
