AFMA congratulates the Texarkana, AR Advertising & Promotion (A&P) Commission for their nomination and selection as this year's Best Market Partner. They were nominated by the Gateway Farmers Market in Texarkana, AR for their support of the Farmers Market by providing funding to increase covered spaces for their vendors from 15 - 23, as well as to repair, replace and add new shade curtains. It is partnerships like these that make Arkansas Farmers Markets a success for their community, which in turn strengthens communities through placemaking.
The Gateway Farmers Market celebrated this award at their winter vendors' meeting. Attending the event were over fifty farmers market vendors including their guests and representatives of the Texarkana, Arkansas Advertising and Promotion Commission.
