LOCAL PRODUCER LOAN PROGRAM

Low-interest loans to help local producers flourish

In addition to featuring local products in our stores, we’re putting our money where our mouths are by providing up to $25 million in low-interest loans to independent local farmers and food artisans. We’re proud to support small producers who need a hand, not a handout, to help them make their dreams reality.
