Focus of Mentorship
The Anaconda Community Market is mostly interested in recruiting farmers, ranchers, and value-added food producers to our farmer's market for affordable, direct sales. We offer shoppers SNAP EBT and Double SNAP Dollar incentives to promote sales and increase access to quality food in our community. The Anaconda Market is each Tuesday, July - September, from 4pm - 7pm, at the Kennedy Common on Main Street. The first market is free, and the subsequent fee is $10/table.
How many years have you been farming, if applicable?The Market started in 2016.
