STATESBORO, Ga. -- AgSouth Farm Credit Marketing Director Christy Smith announced recently that the cooperative has once again set aside $25,000 to help community-based farmers markets promote their markets during 2020.

AgSouth’s purpose in awarding these grants is to increase awareness of how choosing to purchase locally-produced foods and goods benefits each community’s health and economy.

This is the eighth year we have provided funds to help local markets with their advertising, and we’re proud to add our Farmers Market Grants to a long list of ways we continue to support agriculture.”
