Farmers Market Week!
In celebration of National Farmers Market Week we’re sharing a series of articles about the importance of these unique resources. There are over 8,000 farmers markets in the United States and they stimulate local economies, increase access to fresh food, and support healthy lifestyles.
Farmers markets across the country receive assistance from their local land-grant partners. These resources run the gamut from business and marketing expertise, to assistance securing grants and permits.
Farmers market vendors and land-grant educators are animated by a similar goal: to help support a thriving American food system.
