Funding for the SPHERE Grant Program is provided through reallocation of funding for the 2017 SFMNP which was unavailable during the 2017 farmersí market season.


Eligible applicants include FMNP authorized farmersí markets for 2018. Authorized markets must sign a contract or memorandum of understanding with the Department of Agriculture.
