USDA awards grant to Carbondale to study farmer's market

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

It’s harvest time in the Heartland. Carbondale was awarded a grant for a study on farmers' markets. 

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced nearly $35 million that will be allocated in an effort to support local and regional food systems, including farmers markets and the city of Carbondale will be one of the recipients.

Carbondale was awarded a grant of $34,500 that will be used for an economic feasibility study and market assessment of the Carbondale farmers' markets.

The study will explore how the markets and their vendors can develop a greater understanding of the market size for local foods and the subsequent growth potential that may exist.
