Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets (VAAFM)
Grants of up to $15,000 to Vermont food producers and facilitators to increase access to wholesale markets.

The grant program promotes local food wholesale market development opportunities with an institutional focus across the state from Vermont farmers, producer groups, and value-chain facilitators.
Proposed projects must improve quality, efficiency, or food safety; address distribution challenges; or mitigate the financial risks associated with scaling up to meet new market demands.
Proposals addressing market access in Vermont institutions, defined as colleges and universities, early childcare and pre-k-12 schools, hospitals, nursing homes, and correctional facilities, and wholesale market access, including grocery stores, independent retail, and food co-ops, will be considered.
