Cape Fear Farmer’s Market

Organization:
Town of Elizabethtown
Amount:
$400,475.00
Program Area:
Community Assistance Initiative
County of Applicant:
Bladen
Description:

This Golden LEAF grant will assist the Town of Elizabethtown with renovating an existing building in its downtown district for use as a farmer’s market, a project identified in the Town’s 2005 Downtown Enhancement Master Plan. By locating the market in downtown, it is believed that the project will provide an increase in the local tax base, provide a new revenue stream for local farmers, and provide a catalyst for Elizabethtown’s downtown revitalization. The market and two anchor tenants, a butcher shop and a bakery, will create a minimum of 16 new jobs. This project has received funding from the Tobacco Trust Fund, USDA, RAFI and the NC Rural Center.
