JCFM Library – Books and DVDs

The Jackson County Farmers Market has a small library of books and DVDs, mostly focused on food and growing, which may be borrowed by members of the market.  If you are a vendor and your application was approved, you have sold at the market in the current season and paid your appropriate fees, you are a Member.  If you are a customer or community member you can become an Honorary member of the market through our Friends of the Market program.  (See Lisa, the Market Manager, for details).
