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 healthier, 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 Global Food and Ag Network, LLC.

MarketMaker is hosted and maintained by Global Food and Ag Network, LLC, and is guided by an advisory board made up of representatives from among participating partner states.
