The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in serious and substantial impacts on the food supply chain, including farmer’s markets and food hubs across North Carolina. Farmers Markets were not able to open due to state or local orders and others had to reduce the number of vendors to ensure proper social distancing. Food hubs lost sales opportunities due to mandated school and food service closures.

Via S.L. 2020-97, the North Carolina General Assembly appropriated $750,000 of the state’s federal Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) to provide financial aid to provide emergency aid for Farmers Market operators and local food enterprises.

Application Period:
The application period for Farmers Markets and food hubs will be from October 1, through the close of business on October 22, 2020.
