Farmer Scholarship Program

Thanks to our generous donors Green City Market is able to offer educational scholarships to GCM farmers/vendors. The eligible educational opportunities have been expanded to include all regional conferences and workshops and any educational programs offered by local extension offices. The purpose of the scholarship is to provide assistance to those who wish to increase their understanding of sustainable growing practices or obtain 3rd party certification for their farms. 

Scholarship Details:

  • The maximum award amount per farm is $500
  • Scholarships may be redeemed upon proof of payment (valid receipts) towards conference related expenses (admission, workshop fees, transportation, meals).
  • The amount of scholarships available varies from year to year based on available funding. They are given out on a first come first serve basis.   

How to obtain the Scholarship:

  • To inquire about a scholarship, email Melissa Flynn at admin@greencitymarket.org, or call the office at           773-880-1266.
