“The $1,500 grant is to be used for activities such as advertising, social media promotions, collateral material development, participation in Pick TN Products Conference, or membership in the Tennessee Association of Farmers Markets,” Edwards said. “This was possible due to the market becoming an official ‘Pick Tennessee Farmers Market.’”
John Edwards, the founder of the Farmers Market and current Mayor of Cedar Hill told Smokey Barn News; “I’m honored to see our Farmers Market receive this grant. $1,500 is a lot of money for a market like ours and we’re looking at potential signage and other outlets to continue to advance our mission which is to strengthen the community bond and to strengthen the roots that are local farmers and small business owners in our community.”
