MarketMaker is a national network of states that connects farmers and fishermen with food retailers, grocery
stores, processors, caterers, chefs and consumers. It is an ever-growing partnership of land-grant universities, departments of agriculture and food and agricultural organizations investing in a coordinated effort to build a virtual infrastructure that brings healthful, fresher and more flavorful food to the average consumer.
MarketMaker was created at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2004 and is licensed
to Riverside Research, an independent not-for-profit organization. Whether you are a producer looking to reach new markets; a buyer wanting to connect with local or specialty suppliers, a consumer looking for goods and services in your area or someone wanting to find an agritourism operation; listed simply at "tourism" at this site, MarketMaker is a must have resource.
