Moe, J. 2020, New Farm to Market Network!, Desert Farming Initiative, University of Nevada, Reno

The Farm to Market Network helps growers move fresh produce to market in west-central Nevada and the surrounding region. The aim of this cost-free service is to alleviate economic impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, prevent food waste, and increase the efficiency of our regional food system in general. The Fallon Food Hub and UNR Desert Farming Initiative will be running this network as a pilot project from October 12 to December 4, 2020, with the goal of establishing it as a component of our food system in the long run. This pilot project was made possible by grant funding from the Nevada Department of Agriculture. 

How to participate:

  1. Growers: check the stops and the schedule associated with each route reflected on the map below.
  2. Handle invoicing with your buyer and notify them of the anticipated delivery day/time.
  3. Email the DFI or Fallon Food Hub Van serving that area of the network to arrange for the produce pick up at your chosen stop and to plan the delivery.

All produce must be accompanied by a printed invoice!
