The Jackson County Farmers Market and the Community Table have received a combined grant allowing both to move into a new location and promote local foods and eating locally. The grant allowed the community table to improve their new location’s kitchen. This will not only help with serving meals at the community table, but will allow farmers to have a certified kitchen to turn their raw produce into preservatives, salsas, and other items they sale at the farmers market. Many farmers donate their excess produce to the kitchen each week as well, resulting in one more way the market and community table support each other.
