AgSouth Farm Credit Awards Funds to Farmers Markets

STATESBORO, GA – March 16, 2022: AgSouth Farm Credit Marketing Director Christy Smith has released the names of the recipients of the 2022 Think Outside the Store® Farmers Market grant. The Association is distributing $500 each in grant funds to local markets throughout AgSouth’s territory to use for advertising and promotion. 

According to Smith, “There were a lot of good marketing plans this year that focused on re-engaging the communities to get back out and shop at the Farmers Markets. It is encouraging to see the excitement for people to come back together around this staple in our local communities.” 

Smith explained that, “Many farmers get their start selling to local markets. Our grant program was designed to support these farmers by helping to create public awareness of how choosing to shop at your local farmers market benefits not only a community’s health, but also its economy, much in the same way our own patronage program [the cooperative’s profit sharing program] benefits not only our members, but the communities we serve.”
